Meet our graduates

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Massey University; my experience far exceeded my expectations.

Brooke Arter
Bachelor of Business (Business Information Systems) (Human Resources)

The Massey University distance learning programme really allows me to further my knowledge of the sport management industry and utilise these skills while in a full-time role in community rugby for the Horowhenua Kapiti Rugby Union.

Cameron Prouting
Bachelor of Sport Management

Skills I learnt at Massey that I apply in my job include networking, report writing, working with large datasets, financial management and general communication skills.

Cullum Peni - Airport Operations Coordinator, Wellington International Airport
Bachelor of Business (Management)

Most master’s programmes focus on the academic learning whereas I found MALP had a strong experiential aspect to it as well. This meant that I could put what I learned immediately into practice.

Dan Walker - Commercial Sales Executive and DellEMC
Master of Advanced Leadership Practice

The support I received from my supervisors for the research portion of my degree was outstanding. Not only did they ask insightful questions to help me develop my topic and my approach, they provided guidance and moral support for overcoming the challenges that I faced along the way.

Daria Williamson - Capability Coach
Master of Management (Human Resource Management)

For anybody wanting to engage mentally and physically into a sporting lifestyle, then I would strongly recommend studying sport management at Massey. Through this course, I have gained strong connections throughout the sporting world and successfully worked alongside industry professionals.

James McLean
Bachelor of Sport Management

This qualification is applicable to a wide range of leaders in business, and is relevant to everyday work. It may also challenge your thinking! It is for this reason I highly recommend the course.

Jan Lewis
Master of Philosophy

I enjoyed studying at Massey as I felt a real part of the community of both the PhD candidates and the academics on the campus.

Jo Mutter - Massey PhD student
Doctor of Philosophy

I can’t speak highly enough of my supervisors. They were amazing and treated my PhD as an apprenticeship into academia and gave me every opportunity to set myself up to get a job.

Kate Blackwood - Lecturer
Doctor of Philosophy

I see my strength as being a bridge between IT and the business – drawing on my IT knowledge and communication skills.”

Kimberley Tilyard
Bachelor of Business Studies (Business Information Systems)

My favourite part of studying at Massey were the opportunities that I was given around my work, study and connections with the industry. I felt like I really gained an insight to possible career paths.

Lindsay Eastgate
Master of Management (Human Resource Management)

Massey has very informative lecturers who have had experience in their field of choice before turning to teaching. This background allows for great examples to be used during lectures, bringing real-world context to the course.

Mathew Hardie - Junior Manager, Carousel Confectionery
Bachelor of Business (Management)

Massey University’s extramural programme appealed as I was initially contracting for a few organisations and no two days were the same. I wouldn’t have been able to attend lectures. Distance learning was perfect for me – it is such a good way to learn when you have a busy working and family life.

Michele Hider
Master of Management (Communication)

My experience at Massey has been amazing. I feel the staff are there to work alongside and support you to be the best you can. They go out of their way to make things smoother and less stressful for you.

Raiha Hooker
Postgraduate Diploma in Business

I felt that this degree would broaden my horizon in terms of opportunities, as the analytics industry is expanding at a frightening pace due to the explosive rise of Big Data.

Ryan Gan
Master of Analytics (Business)

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Massey. I experienced many aspects of tertiary study from living on campus as a first-year student, to studying extramurally while working full time, and then being invited back to lecture an HR paper. The courses I took, particularly in my postgraduate studies, provided an excellent grounding for my career.

Sharon Grant - People and Capability Manager – Horizons Regional Council
Master of Management (Human Resource Management)

This master’s was a great experience that has improved me in all aspects of life – work, home and friends. I thought I was already pretty good at time management but I learnt how important it really was while doing my master’s!

Sheina Osten - Market, Supply & Demand Analyst – New Vehicle Department, Toyota
Master of Business Studies (Management)

Massey Business School runs a start-up type competition. We had to form groups around ideas people had for new businesses and spend an intensive weekend doing research and getting input from experienced entrepreneurs. Then we pitched our idea to a panel of investors. I found those experiences invaluable.

Simon Stephenson - English Instructor, Şehir University, Istanbul
Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

My Diploma of Business Studies where I focused on entrepreneurship, gave me the foundation I needed to launch my business – Scrub Collab. The broad range of skills we learned during the programme – particularly accounting and start-up know-how, gave me the confidence to turn a hobby into a money-making enterprise.

Stephanie Buckeridge - Founder, The Scrub Collab
Diploma in Business Studies (Entrepreneurship and Small Business)
