Students build their business networks

As a budding entrepreneur, Malaysian student Sri Themudu appreciates the practical learning and networking opportunities available at Otago Business School.

"I had four days of classes every 45 days, with more practical elements emphasised in class than theoretical elements. The best part is that the lecturers bring in entrepreneurs to talk to us," he says.

“Inbetween classes we have assignments, networking events and workshops."

We are also given the flexibility to explore New Zealand business. Being an entrepreneur is all about networking, and we are able to go out to talk to businesses and build our networks. I’ve been able to meet CEOs of companies through the university.

“Otago has a one-month orientation for scholarship students. It’s such a good transition period to the culture and the language that I didn’t feel homesick at all."

“They even showed us where we could find the cheapest place to get a haircut or a jacket, and gave us advice on budgeting. I really appreciated all they did for us.”
