What our students say

“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.”
Simon Stephenson

Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

“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.”
Sharon Grant

Master of Management (Human Resource Management)

“Massey was the first university to provide the mix of science and business I was looking for in one degree. This mix suited me and was one of the main reasons I decided to join Massey.”
