At NZIE we’re excited! We are launching our new NZQA approved Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Business.
This programme is a game changer in the Postgraduate space and will be available to students from any background from Feb 2017.
We are taking Applied learning to the next level.
For a start we co-created this programme with Industry. Business leaders in New Zealand said we wanted students with great communication, adaptability, flexibility and resilience. So how do you teach this?
With over 6 years’ experience of delivering Internships and outstanding employment outcomes for our graduates, we knew that we had to produce a programme that delivered employers what they wanted but still give the students a great opportunity for learning.
By offering practical opportunities for students through a research project which gets the student working with their chosen industry in the first semester and then finishes with an Internship in the final semester.
Of course all our Internship opportunities are supported by NZIE’s employment service, Think Recruit.
The great thing about this programme is graduate students from any field of study can join the programme.
Yes, that’s right, you can be a graduate from non-business areas such as Health and Engineering and gain entry into the programme. We’ll focus on your field of study and related work experience and get you working directly with your current industry.
You’ll complete a research project with the company you’ve chosen and you’ll get to go in and complete your Internship there in the final semester.
