"I was lucky in being able to find exactly what I wanted to specialise in from doing the core courses in my first year.

"The highlight of my studies was working on a research project in international business, where I was able to apply what I’d learnt in class to a real-life project.

"Now I’m putting my studies into practice every day in my job. I deal with customers bringing cargo into New Zealand, releasing containers, organising customs clearance and communicating with the customers, making sure their needs are met."
