What our students say

“I’m an international student doing a Bachelor of Accountancy at Massey, and my experience has been wonderful. Lecturers are dedicated and friendly, the courses are well laid out, the teaching is fantastic. It is immediately obvious that staff all genuinely want you to do your very best.”
Samuel Ehalaiye

Bachelor of Accountancy

“I've benefited a lot from the connections made, and the applied learning at Massey Business School. It's important to remember that you need these connections to expand your career opportunities. After graduating, I've been asked to come back and share my experiences from the workplace, and how the skills developed at Uni can be applied in the real world.”
Varoon Nair

Master of Analytics

“I’m a Massey graduate from the early 1990s, completing my undergraduate science studies and then a MSc. Having gone through Medical School after my Masters, I have now found myself requiring some extra management/business skills development for my current role. It was an easy decision to re-enrol at Massey in the Master of Health Service Management, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each paper.”

Meet our graduates

“Juggling an internship, full-time study, part-time work and some extra social media and design work for New World during lockdown has been stressful at times, but I'm forever grateful for all the opportunities I've been provided this year and wouldn't change a thing.”
Bella Norton

“Massey University provided me with a broad knowledge base from day one, with a holistic approach to Aviation Management. I now have a much greater appreciation for the depth of the industry. My time at Massey was very enjoyable, I met so many open minded students, and engaged with passionate faculty members, but most importantly, I had fun!”
Patrick Gainsford
