Last week, I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend the presentations from some of our students to an engineering firm. The students were tasked with examining the opportunities for the firm in the South East Asia region. Earlier, I was involved in providing some feedback to the students, and so it was encouraging to see the progress that some of the teams made. In particular, one of the teams that had earlier struggled managed to turn everything around and produce a carefully considered and beautiful presentation that conveyed their research very effectively.
There was a lot of interest evident from the three executives that judged. Their task was not made easy by the high quality of presentations.
It’s also important to note that the judges saw all presentations and these were not cherry-picked or a selection of only the strongest students.
If you want to know why you should be studying at the University of Auckland, you only need to see the standard of analysis and presentation from the students to understand what the Master of Management programme can offer. Congratulations to the students involved – it was very impressive work.
