Quality education testimonials

Hao Sun - Bachelor of Information Technology

My journey into the IT industry started at AIS. The quality and practical aspects of the programme were the reasons I chose to study the Bachelor of Information Technology.

The programme offered me a great opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of how the IT industry affects society, and practical skills in the IT field. The knowledge and skills I gained at AIS helped me develop confidence, which in turn enabled me to secure a good position with one of the most promising IT companies in Auckland.

I currently work as a developer for BuzzTasker Ltd and my job responsibilities range from the presentation layer using JavaScript, jQuery and Ajax, to server coding with C#, ASP.NET and ADO.NET, plus database design and development. As a result of my studies at AIS, we have created a web-based application:

A large part of my success can be attributed to my lecturers who were very supportive throughout my studies at AIS.


Vanessa Britto - Master of Business Administration

Prior to commencing the MBA programme at AIS, I had just completed my bachelor degree in management and was working as an HR Consultant in Auckland, something I thought I’d be happy making a career of. However, that changed with the MBA, which stimulated and challenged me mentally and it helped me with my personal and professional development.

I am currently working in account management/risk analysis for a global organisation, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. I can honestly say that the MBA at AIS helped me with my career progression.

The faculty administering the courses are top lecturers from various universities who have global business experience, not just academic knowledge, which they share in class. There is a strong network in place to support students, which I found extremely helpful.

As a professional, I use the skills and knowledge acquired through the MBA in my everyday work life. In today’s world, everyone has a degree, but the MBA works as a trump card for career progression and I would highly recommend the AIS MBA programme to any professional looking to advance their career prospects.


Naveen Kumar - Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration

I am a keen advocate for AIS. Studying for the PGDBA has contributed towards my personal development in ways I could never have imagined when I first thought of making my move to New Zealand after completing my first degree in Electronic Engineering in India.

The combination of excellent academic staff, well structured courses and a friendly and multicultural student body with a variety of on and off campus activities is unbeatable. The decision to choose AIS for my postgraduate studies is one that I definitely don’t regret.

Teaching and assessment methodologies at AIS are very innovative – certainly not course book cramming. My programme was a combination of management theories and ideas, industry visits and practical skills applicable to what’s happening in the world right now. Brainstorming sessions on strategic planning and marketing management enable you to better understand bigger pictures thereby bringing your decision-making ability to a new ‘high’.

In my current position as Assistant Manager at Walker & Hall, it is important for me to understand and appreciate the value of providing quality customer care to customers of different ethnicities, manage day-to-day activities and have in-depth knowledge of the competitive business landscape.

My contributions to increase our store sales and enhance brand value are appreciated by my store manager. The AIS Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDBA) has certainly given me a ‘head-start’.
