Bachelor Of Business Studies (Communication Management and Marketing)
Graduated 2011

“I was able to do a unique double major that has opened up so many more career opportunities….”

I completed a BBS, double major (Marketing) and (Communication Management)

I was named on the Massey Business School Dean's List for 2010.

Currently I am working as an International marketing coordinator for one of New Zealand's leading education providers based in Auckland. 

Massey University stood out to me for a number of reasons; the real-world learning approach of study, the friendly staff and lecturers, as well as smaller and more involved classes. I feel that I learned a lot from our practical projects and assignments especially in marketing, media and public relations. I wanted to do a double major of both marketing and communication, no other university in Wellington was offering communication as a major.

The papers were well balanced between theory and practical, they provided me with skills that I use every day in my current role. I had the opportunity to undertake a communication internship paper, working on one of New Zealand's leading social change campaigns. The internship helped opened the door to my first job as a graduate. I feel lucky that I had the support and encouragement from my marketing and communication lecturers, their style has influenced my career path.

I would recommend for anyone to study at Massey! I was able to do a unique double major that has opened up so many more career opportunities. Our lecturers knew us by name, were very helpful and approachable; a culture that is often hard to find within a large tertiary institution.
