Current PhD students
"I investigated studying at other New Zealand universities but chose Massey because of the great marketing knowledge and expertise of my supervisors. In particular, my main supervisor, Professor Malcolm Wright, is a widely recognised expert in branding, consumer behaviour and marketing research methods."
For me, Massey is my second family. I feel very happy and secure here, and love living in Palmerston North. Massey has excellent facilities and a supportive environment for PhD students. I always feel listened to and supported by my lecturers.
Studying my PhD in New Zealand has been the best experience. The Massey Institute of Education has a strong reputation among New Zealand universities so it is my pride to study here.
Dr Annie Zhang, who graduated with her PhD from Massey University in 2015, hoped her thesis will help improve the financial literacy of Kiwi families.

Dr Meo-Sewabu, who is the coordinator of the Pacific Research and Policy Centre at Massey University, graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy in Social Policy from the College of Health in 2016.
Dr Fernandez began her doctoral journey at Te-Pūtahi-a-Toi – the School of Māori Art, Knowledge and Education. She transferred to Te Pūmanawa Hauora - the Māori Health Research Unit at Massey’s School of Public Health - to complete a PhD in Public Health.
