Massey alumni values the opportunity to study later in life
Rebekah Sulman graduated earlier this year with her second Massey qualification, a master's in management, after leaving school in the early '90s with the equivalent of NCEA Level 1.
After working for a few years, Rebekah decided to pursue further study. Despite worrying she would be out of her depth as a mature student surrounded by high school leavers, she enrolled in a communication degree in 2010. She soon found this was far from the case, and was pleased to discover her classmates were of all different ages and backgrounds.
Rebekah enjoyed the blended-learning approach that meant she could fit her studies around other commitments, including working with New Zealand Parliamentary Services fulfilling her passion as a champion for those who sometimes don’t have a voice.
Upon completing her first degree, she landed her dream role here at Massey in the Student Recruitment team and spent close to five years working to guide rangatahi and mature learners like herself on their university journey.
In 2018, Rebekah became the Marketing and Communication Manager for Massey Business School and decided to undergo further study. "Studying for a master's in management helped me to develop self-awareness around my capabilities and management style and reinforced my commitment to positive stakeholder engagement," she says.
She’s forever grateful for the support of her partner, kids and wider family - and her Massey family - for standing beside her along the way.
Congratulations again Rebekah. Kei te whakahihi katoa mātou ki a koe. We are proud of you and will miss you here at Massey.
