Whether you are looking at managing your very own business, or are looking for a job in the business industry, the Business Management Program at NZIE has something for you.
Learning business is so much more than being taught how an organisation runs; it’s a way of thinking and analysing information in order to make the right choices to help your business prosper. Most people cannot instinctively grasp the macro and micro elements of the ways a business runs, but thankfully these skills can be taught!
The skills and tools needed to succeed in the business industry are all provided to you by NZIE’s Business Management Programme, in supportive and constructive ways which help you reach your full potential.
The best part is – once you’ve graduated, your combination of skills and industry experience will make you a desireable hire for any company!
Internships and job opportunities
One of the advantages NZIE offers is the opportunity to gain internships and even fully fledged work experience as part of your learning. This is a crucial part of the App programme as it means you leave the course with not only an excellent academic understanding of the business world, but with the knowledge, skills and experience one utilises in the industry on a day to day level.
The internships and work experiences can even lead directly to permanent employment after you have completed the course, and even if they don’t, NZIE’s career services, Think Recruit, are highly proactive and effective at seeking out opportunities for students and graduates.
The Business Management Program at NZIE can be taken at several different learning levels depending on your stage of study; this includes the Diploma in Applied Business (Level 5), the Diploma in Applied Business (Level 7) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Business (Level 8). For more information about these options, please visit the Business Management Program page.
As pathway to Digital Marketing
If you are fresh out of High School and can’t decide on what to do next, the Diploma in Applied Business (Level 5) at NZIE is a highly recommended option. This is a course which introduces you to business principles across the board. If you are interested in studying Digital Marketing but do not yet have the degree or work experience to qualify for that program, then this is the bridging course for you! Once you’ve completed the Level 5 course, you will be able to proceed directly into the Digital Marketing Program. Furthermore, this means that once you’ve finished your Digital Marketing diploma, you’ll have a sound knowledge of the business world too – a truly invaluable combination. If you’re unsure whether Digital Marketing is for you, or if you just want to know a bit more about it, have a quick read of my personal experience.
