It only took me one year to finish my Level 7 Diploma in Business at New Zealand College of Business. NZCB has given me full support in pursuing my dream to study a Master’s at University. This is a great opportunity for NZCB level 7 graduates.

Cao Yu Hang, Former NZCB Student

I finished my Level 7 Diploma in Business at New Zealand College of Business, and I am now working in Christchurch. Whilst I was studying at New Zealand College of Business I experienced an excellent, friendly learning environment. As a student, I not only learnt theoretical knowledge and practical skills but also skills related with job hunting and job applications. The College has provided me with skills which are transferable to the workplace.

Daisuke Nezu, Former NZCB Student

I believe choosing to attend NZCB is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I decided that I wanted something better for myself, and so I chose to study two years at NZCB towards a Diploma in Business Administration at level 6 and level 7. Having graduated at NZCB, I have now found myself a job at managerial level which I really feel happy about.
