“For those who are seeking a qualification that will add value immediately to their level of business acumen, I would most definitely recommend the University of Waikato’s MBA,” says Waikato MBA graduate Moana Leilua.

“I’ve seen the benefits personally, and also with peers in my classes. Not only is it highly academic, but it can be practically applied in the workplace. That’s one of the key aspects I really value about the qualification.”

Before undertaking the MBA, Moana had been working as a schools and youth liaison officer in South Auckland. She was hoping to gain more knowledge, build confidence to apply for senior roles, and increase her professional networks.

Moana says the programme has definitely delivered on her expectations. “The quality of the lecturers and the learnings gained since starting this journey have been invaluable,” she says.

Being able to meet like-minded people who are striving towards higher aspirations professionally is one aspect she has enjoyed during her time at Waikato. It soon became evident that her investment in the MBA was worth it.
