Internships and business placements

Internships and applied workplace projects provide our students with an education experience relevant to today’s business environment. As a business, you get a fresh, new approach to your business or latest projects.

Business Internship

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.


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 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.

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.
