MIT Delivers Best Overall results in reports
Manukau Institute of Technology Delivers Best Overall
Results in New Tec Performance Reports
The Tertiary Education Commission’s report, ‘The Performance of Tertiary Education Organisations’ has given the Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) the big tick for its overall performance in this highly competitive sector.
MIT is the
only institute ranked in the top five across all indicators
of success in:
• Successful completion of courses – 76% (median 70%)
• Completion of qualifications – 58% (median 51%)
• Student progression to higher level study – 43% (median 29%)
• Students retained in study – 52% (median 47%)
Chief Executive Dr. Peter Brothers is delighted with the results. “This is testament to the hard work of all of our staff, particularly our academics over the past three years to develop great academic programmes and to support student success. During that time a lot of effort has gone into redefining and implementing MIT’s new Academic Plan. These results clearly show we are heading in the right direction,’ he says.
Particularly pleasing were the results for student progression to higher levels of study, where MIT is ranked number two nationally and is 14% higher than the median.
“We work closely with our stakeholders and communities to deliver programmes and courses that enable students to be work ready and to progress to higher education,” says Dr. Brothers.
“The fact that we are the best performing institute across the four key indicators demonstrates that if students want to succeed, they have a higher likelihood of doing so at MIT. But despite our success, we are not complacent. MIT has a firm commitment to playing its part in helping to meet the needs of employers by equipping students with the necessary skills needed in these challenging economic times, and into the future.”
The Tertiary Education Commission has released these results for the first time, to benchmark the performance of twenty institutes in the sector.
