Max shares his reasons for choosing to study a conjoint programme combining Science and Commerce and the benefits this pathway brings.
Programme: Conjoint Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Commerce
Subject: Psychology, Statistics, Marketing and Information Systems
"I’ve always been interested in human behaviour. Studying Psychology and Statistics lets me build my knowledge, as well as analytical and writing skills.
"I also chose to major in Marketing and Information Systems in my Commerce degree to help improve my problem-solving skills with real-world cases.
My conjoint degree gives me the chance to learn and interact with people from different faculties, and it broadens my job opportunities – I could become a business consultant, psychologist or a data analyst.
"Also, the skills I learn in my Science and Commerce degrees complement each other, so I’m able to improve my abilities and achieve higher standards.
"I chose to study at the University of Auckland because it is the top university in New Zealand and with high international recognition, it attracts talented people from different regions. Surrounding myself with smart and ambitious people helps me constantly challenge myself to achieve.
"Environment and friendships are important aspects in University life. Both the Faculty of Science and the Business School have amazing people and environments that foster interaction. Meeting different people and making a lot of friendships helps with networking for my future career, and makes University life so much more enjoyable."
