NZMA And Toi Ohomai Partner to Provide Degree Pathway


NZMA And Toi Ohomai Partner to Provide Business Management Degree Pathway

10 December 2018 – New Zealand Management Academies (NZMA) have partnered with Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology to provide a pathway for higher level learning students to access Toi Ohomai’s Postgraduate Diploma in Management.

Subject to NZQA approval, the agreement, signed by both parties in Tauranga today, allows NZMA to begin teaching the one year full-time programme. The programme is aimed at higher level learners in line with government calls to meet specific skill outcomes. Students who complete the postgraduate diploma will also have a direct pathway to the Master of Management through Toi Ohomai.

NZMA Chief Executive Officer, Mark Worsop, said to make a real difference to our communities and other stakeholders, partnership between private and public is a key ingredient.

“The partnership with Toi Ohomai is a great example of working effectively together, sharing resource, best practice, innovations, and networks to deliver the programmes our students need to help power New Zealand. We see a lot of potential to work closely with Toi Ohomai to service the training and education needs of our students, both near and far.

“With recent Immigration policy changes we have been looking at degree and postgraduate programmes to continue our strong international presence. So rather than duplicate similar local programmes, we found Toi Ohomai ticked all the boxes, and we’re thrilled to formalise this agreement today.”

The programme will be advantageous for international students in particular seeking to gain work experience in New Zealand after their studies.

Toi Ohomai Chief Executive, Dr Leon Fourie, said cross-sector collaboration enables a greater range of educational options for learners.

“Our partnership with NZMA is an example of how we can work with highly regarded PTEs such as NZMA to bring our excellent programmes to a wider market that will benefit prospective learners. We’re delighted to be able to work together, and expect our relationship could potentially lead to other collaborative opportunities in the future.

“It makes more sense for us to partner with NZMA, rather than open a campus in Auckland. That way we can continue to focus on providing the best campus experience for our students here in the Bay of Plenty and South Waikato,” Dr Fourie said.

With the agreement signed today, NZMA and Toi Ohomai will collaborate on the necessary NZQA approval process, and then on promoting the pathway to the NZMA student and graduate community, ahead of the first intake, which is hoped will be in the second half of 2019.
