Master of Business and Management

Waikato Management School

On her first day of study at Waikato, Eline was told she had to think and act like a business person. That set the tone for the next 15 months of study.

“The programme met all my expectations. I chose Waikato’s MBM because of Waikato Management School’s good reputation and Hamilton is an easy city to live in – not too big, not to small, with easy access to Asian foodstores."

Eline came to New Zealand from Shanghai where she’d been working for a department in the multi-national market research company Nielsen. "Coming to Waikato has taught me a lot, most especially how to be a good leader – what responsibilities a leader should take, how to lead teams and lead in a crisis. As I move on, I feel these new-found skills will give me a critical advantage.”

Students are required to do an action learning project – work on a real business situation. “Our group worked with the Women’s Health Department (WHD) of Waikato District Health Board. The experience was unique and I treasure it".

“It helped me understand the culture in New Zealand organisations, how people communicate with each other in the workplace and how they perform".
