A hands-on programme
“I loved the practicality of the Business degree. The first year compulsory papers helped me develop a very broad knowledge base. I wouldn’t otherwise have tried those subjects, but they’re important to understand. They also helped me to discover my INNOVENT major – I didn’t even know it was possible to study it!"
Networking and career development
“I utilised CV clinics and went along to many different networking presentations at University to make connections for future opportunities. I got an internship with Little Giant (a digital agency) through the Business School. I firmly believe I am where I am now because of that – it kick started my career, gave me a taste for life and business in the real world. It was a giant step through the door of the industry that I love.”

Living in Auckland
“Auckland itself is vibrant, multi-cultural and fast paced. To me it represented growth and opportunity for both local and global business. I chose my major for exactly this reason, to learn from real entrepreneurs and their experiences.”
