Short Courses Director appointed at Business School

Darren Levy has been appointed Director of Short Courses at The University of Auckland Business School.

Mr Levy (26) will oversee the delivery of nearly 300 short business courses run at the University each year for professionals, companies and organisations.

Mr Levy has worked for Short Courses since 1998 and has been Associate Director for the past two years. He recently graduated as one of 55 people on the Future Leaders’ programme delivered by Excelerator – The NZ Leadership Institute.

He will take on the challenge of ‘lifting the competency of the nation’ – a goal set by the Short Courses team when it was established ten years ago.

“We are very much at the centre of training needs for New Zealand business people. More than 23,000 professionals have up-skilled by attending one of our courses, so we have made a considerable contribution to the knowledge base in the business and professional sectors,” Mr Levy says.

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
