Meet Noel D'Souza

Noel D’Souza is studying towards a conjoint Bachelor of Commerce (Economics and Finance) and Bachelor of Engineering.


Noel D’Souza chose the University of Auckland because of its high ranking but it was the student experience that really stood out in his first year.

“The ability to mix learning with socialising has been amazing,” he says.

Noel is a member of the Business School Case Programme squad and the Management Consulting Club (MCC). His student club membership has allowed him to travel internationally and work on solving real business problems.

“You get to meet people from industry and learn with aspiring business leaders,” he says.  

The Business School ASB Careers Centre offers events with expos, speed networking, recruitment presentations, and guest speakers. Noel says this has given him the opportunity to ask people in industry for career advice.

“I have spoken to people from Deloitte who gave me first-hand advice on how to get a job with the company – that’s a very valuable opportunity that the University offers.”

Noel also appreciates the global position of the Business School.

“The staff and students are very multicultural. There are people from all over the world such as Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States, who all bring their own experiences, perspectives and ideas.”
