Business and Community - School of Business and Economics - University of Canterbury

Connecting with business and the wider community

Developing NZ's future business leaders

UC Business School is in the business of educating tomorrow's professionals, entrepreneurs and corporate workforce. Quality teaching and research must be carried out in association with the communities our graduates will enter. For us, engagement with industry and the community adds value and relevance to the teaching and learning experience and research work of both our staff and students.

The UC Business School Advisory Board provides strategic advice and guidance to the Head of School and senior management, and assists the School to build effective links with the business and professional communities.

Current students may participate in internships and work experience covering many professional fields. These range from formal internships and project-based university courses for credit, through to voluntary work. By providing support to organisations for current projects or service areas, our students are exposed to real life challenges and gain valuable work experiences.

Students have opportunities to apply their skills in external business competitions and challenges, as well as through voluntary work

During the academic year UC hosts a series of careers fairs including the Commerce Careers Fair, and ICT Careers Fair. These events are great ways to get in front of students to promote your organisation and recruit graduates.
