Hire an intern
If you would like a fresh, new approach to your business or help completing a short-term project that you may not have the time or flexibility to undertake yourself, hiring an intern is a great option.
Interns are capable of working at professional entry level. At the end of their internship, students produce a report that is made available to your organisation, often delivering great insights.https://www.youtube.com/embed/ga2xrCVGlN4
Internships and work placements
Aviation Management Internship
The Massey Bachelor of Aviation Management degree’s industry internship enables students to combine their university studies with work experience in any area of the aviation industry.
Students complete a 12 week internship with an aviation industry organisation. Completed projects include airport safety research, assistance to create a new cargo airline, analysis of crew scheduling and improvement of On Time Performance for a low cost international airline.
The Business Internship is available to high-achieving undergraduate business students in their final year. Students will complete 180 hours in the workplace over two semesters (timing negotiated between the student and organisation). Past students have undertaken a wide range of projects including software systems implementation, marketing planning, social media initiatives and operational analyses.
The Communication Internship is available to high-achieving Bachelor of Communication students in their third year. The internship gives our students great real-world experience. Internships consist of 100-120 hours working on projects or a collection of communication-related activities that will support the work of the host organisation.
Master of Advanced Leadership Practice - Social Enterprise Placement
The MALP is a unique executive level postgraduate qualification. The programme offers students the opportunity to undertake a social enterprise placement as part of the programme. This internship partners students with a social enterprise in New Zealand in a mutually beneficial arrangement. The placement is for nine hours per month and has been notable for the positive outcomes experienced by both students and participating organisations.
Master of Analytics - work placement
The Master of Analytics aims to give students experience solving real-world business problems. As part of their study, students complete a four month work placement (Nov – Feb). This allows businesses the opportunity to hire a postgraduate student trained in the rigorous analysis of big data, to help with either completing a specific analytics project, or extending the organisation's analytics capability.
Master of Business Administration - Research Project
As part of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification students are required to produce an applied business research report. Often MBA students conduct research at their own employer, however they can look for another organisation or a different sector within which to do this work. If you have an area that would benefit from an experienced executive perspective, get in contact with us.
Master of Management - Professional Practice
The Master of Management has a professional practice course as a capstone course in students' final semester. Students undertake an investigation broadly within the area of their programme major, which is completed via either an internship/practicum, applied case study or enterprise planning practice. The students prepare a professional consulting style report, and present their findings at the end of the course.
Retail and Business Management Internship
Completing an internship is compulsory for Bachelor of Retail and Business Management students. They are also available to selected students interested in retail and the broader service sector. As part of the internships, students are expected to critically reflect on their internship experiences and their host organisation’s product offerings and the markets they serve, as well as producing operational and strategic analyses in the form of consultancy reports.
Sport management practicums
Massey University’s Bachelor of Sport Management students complete two practicums: a 30-hour Sport Management Mini-Practicum (second year) and a 180-hour capstone Sport Management Practicum (third year). This helps students gain hands-on experience and develop the specialised sport management knowledge and skills they need when they join the workforce.
Massey sport management students can lead or partake in industry projects related to events, social media, marketing, sponsorship or general sport management. They can also take part in staff and planning meetings, budget discussions, sponsor liaisons, debriefs, etc.
