Marine mammal researcher to teach management in Kerikeri

Widely experienced in business, as well as possessing a background in marine mammal research and conservation, Jo Berghan is to teach NorthTec’s NZIM (New Zealand Institute of Management) Diploma in Management at the Kerikeri campus this year.

Recipient of the Department of Conservation (DOC) New Zealand Conservation Award in 2002, Jo brings a wealth of management acumen to her teaching role, which stretches from holding a commercial launchmaster’s certificate to a Bachelor in Applied Science (Psychology major).

“It would be fair to say that I’ve packed a whole lot of different activities and experiences into my life including the NZIM Diploma in Management and that is what I aim to bring when I teach the programme in Kerikeri this year,” Jo says.

A former business administrator and planner, manager and a marine mammals’ protection officer, Jo still rates her research into North-east New Zealand’s bottlenose dolphins among her finest achievements.

“Contributing to conserving some of our most beautiful mammals is very satisfying. I’ve been involved with conservation management for a long time and that experience just enhances the way you approach and teach management,” Jo says.

“I’m really looking forward to using all that knowledge and passing on to students the different ways to use and implement management skills.”

The NZIM Diploma is a level 5 qualification consisting of six papers in: Management, Marketing, Communication, Accounting, Applied Management and Leadership. The programme is delivered over two semesters throughout the year.

Three papers are delivered in semester one and three in semester two, with each paper taught on one-day-per week in a four-hour block. This format is ideal for those who are currently employed and who wish to upskill while continuing to work, as the programme allows for either full or part-time study.

Since the Diploma staircases into the Bachelor of Applied Management, students have the ideal opportunity to complete part of their first year of study at the Kerikeri campus.
