With lots of questions and doubts I started my enquiries about pursuing my higher education in NZ. By the time I approached AK consultants I was also having 3 years of work experience in IT and HR. So it was tough decision for me to arrive at a conclusion. But Aladi Arun clarified my doubts about the course and made my expectations clear. After a lot of choices I decided to go for a Post Graduate Diploma with the University of Waikato.
Waikato Management School was appealing to me in so many ways; it is Triple Crown Accredited and No 1 business school in New Zealand. More than the accreditations and ranking, the quality of education was placed totally at a different level with excellent implications of real life professional scenarios. With ample choices to subjects and departments we were asked to choose 4 areas of specialization to complete the course. I made sure that I had a research paper in one of my courses. It not only developed my research and development skills but also helped me to look at various problem solving methodologies in the E-business industry.
I would happily recommend the course to anyone who always wanted to experience a real life issues and approach with the education system. The course also helped to develop a lot of contacts with people in the IT industry in NZ. And this helped me a lot during my job search process, when I started hunting for jobs I knew exactly what kind of market I had to target at. With my previous experience in India and my course with WMS I was able to secure an IT Recruitment Consultant role with RANN IT, Auckland. The course with the University of Waikato helped me understand the industry speculations and business scenarios in New Zealand which was a crucial factor that I could make use in my current role.
