Polytechnic programme in demand with US students
Demand is high for the next planned venture between Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP) and a top United States business school.
Last summer, TPP hosted 14 students from the prestigious Wharton Business School to take part in a New Zealand “Coast-to-Coast” themed leadership training course. Every year as part of their training, Wharton students take part in a series of “ventures” in locations all around the world.
Director Experiential Leadership Centre Dave Ritchie says the venture was so successful that 110 Wharton students have already joined the waitlist for the next TPP-led course.
“We have developed a great working relationship with Wharton Business School and they tell us that our NZ-based venture has received more interest from students than any other on offer.
“It is great to know that we are making an impact on this globally recognised business education provider. We will continue to develop our partnership and welcome more Wharton students to New Zealand.”
