Welcome from the Postgraduate Office

Happy New Year! On behalf of the Postgraduate Office, a very warm welcome to our new postgraduate students. Thank you for choosing the University of Auckland Business School for your postgraduate study. For those returning students, it’s great to have you back with us again. I’m sure you will all have a challenging and exciting year ahead of you and we wish you the best of luck with your first semester or quarter.

This Postgraduate Newsletter provides a channel for communication between our Business School staff and students. We cover many of the interesting and exciting events happening at the Business School, alert you to important postgraduate information and celebrate the recent achievements and success of your postgraduate colleagues.

The first issue of the year features our new PhD representatives for 2014. Mariaelena, Torsten and Gerry are all in their second year of doctoral study and are eager to support their fellow PhD colleagues throughout the year. This edition also looks at the first quarters of our new GSM Masters programmes and how these students have settled into their studies. PhD student Smita Paul shares her latest conference adventures in Italy and Singapore, and recent honours graduate Saskia Ruscoe tells us about her exciting new role at the NZ Stock Exchange.

We are very keen to hear from our postgraduate students, so I encourage you to email me with any news or stories, so that we can celebrate these achievements and you can keep up-to-date with what your fellow postgraduates are doing.

I hope you all settle into the Business School quickly and we look forward to seeing you at some of our upcoming events. Here’s to a great year ahead!
