About the faculty

To remain competitive, businesses, organisations, and people need to adapt to the changing world. Today's employers are looking for more than just a qualification. They need graduates with specific attributes – values, behaviours, knowledge, and skills. This is where the Wintec Centre for Business and Enterprise is educating people with what is needed not just for today, but for tomorrow's world. 

The Centre for Business and Enterprise (CBE) has strong links with employers through their employer partnerships and advisory groups. Staff are highly qualified and are represented in many professional bodies, such as CAANZ, CPA, CFA, AAPNZ, and HRINZ. They can help you get involved with these organisations too. Depending on your programme of study, you may have opportunities to complete work experience through visits to workplaces and through projects and internships for businesses and community groups. Events also enable you to meet with local employers and to network. 

We take pride in enabling you to develop the skills and knowledge that employers need to help them succeed so that you are valued in the workplace.
