Gain applied business knowledge and hands-on skills connected to local industry so you can hit the ground running. Choose a single or double major in Accounting, Management or Marketing.

If you achieved University Entrance (UE) in 2020, the entry requirements for this programme may differ from those displayed on this page and in printed material due to the disruption caused by COVID-19. To find out about entry requirements for those who achieve UE in 2020 see the NZQA website(external link).

We live in a world of information, but you also need soft skills to succeed in business. For example:

  • effective communication
  • managing yourself and working collaboratively
  • problem solving using creative and innovative thinking
  • building and developing business relationships
  • professional and ethical behaviour

You will gain these key transferable skills along with business knowledge in your chosen area of interest and have the opportunity to practise in real-life scenarios through our Merging Futures programme.

From day one, you will apply what you learn to real-world scenarios. You will spend part of your time in a traditional classroom environment and the rest working through challenges as part of a business team. Organising events, balancing project budgets, negotiating contracts are just some examples of the skills you will be practising.
