What Our Students Say

  • “I’m currently working on an interesting project as part of my internship at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I’m doing a literature review of megatrends expected to impact New Zealand’s economy in the next ten years. The internship is a component of the degree, and it has been a great opportunity to make connections in the policy arena."
