Defining Excellence Awards

The Defining Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of Massey's alumni and staff. We also pay tribute to the partner organisations and businesses we've worked with. The Awards evening has been a highlight on the University's calendar since 2010.

Massey University has a proud and longstanding history of excellence in both research and teaching. The quality of our staff is reflected in the awarding of five stars by the QS international ranking system.
