Business degree brings networking opportunities

Studying at AUT University in Auckland

Leadership and networking opportunities have been two of the major advantages of studying in New Zealand for Bachelor of Business student Bin Xu.

Bin, from China, chose to study at AUT in Auckland because of its interactive classes and approachable lecturers.

"My study at AUT has been amazing so far. The staff are wonderful and they're always willing to help," says Bin.


There are so many opportunities to develop your skills and make valuable industry contacts. For example, I participated in AUT's Shadow a Leader programme and was lucky enough to follow the CEO of Ports of Auckland for a day.

"Another highlight for me was my final-year industry placement, which I completed at a chartered accountants' firm in Queenstown."

Bin was also able to spend two semesters studying at the highly-ranked Nanyang Business School in Singapore as part of his degree, which he says helped him expand his networks in Southeast Asia.

"You learn so much by pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. You also meet so many interesting people and gain exposure to a different culture."
