First graduate mastering global business

First graduate mastering global business

The first graduate from a new Unitec masters degree is planning to use his qualification in the global business world.

Harry Abughazala will become the first graduate from the Master of Business (MBus) on Friday, receiving his degree at Unitec¹s spring graduation ceremony in the Auckland Town Hall.

Before starting the MBus, Harry was an IT consultant and also had a background in fast-food franchising. He says that he was interested in international business consultancy work, but wanted to get more of an academic underpinning.

³I felt I was missing some of the formal, current, business theory. Business is not always friendly with academia and what attracted me to the Unitec degree was its focus on experience and knowledge that can be applied in the real world.²

The MBus allows students to select courses from a wide range of business disciplines and Harry says that this allowed him to shape his own study path. ³Compared to other programmes, the MBus has more papers to choose from and has both the depth and breadth.

³My focus was on international business and I was excited to learn more about globalisation. The courses met my expectations and a number far exceeded them.²

Harry is among the 445 people from Unitec¹s diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes receiving their qualifications at spring graduation.

What: Unitec Spring Graduation Where: Auckland Town Hall When: 10.00am, Friday 22 September
