Bachelor of Applied Management Scholarships

It’s not very often a tertiary institution offers scholarships up to $10,000 for students enrolling in one of their degree courses.

But that’s exactly what WITT has on offer for new applicants to their Bachelor of Applied Management degree.

It’s a three-year fulltime course, but many students do it part time over a longer period. The scholarship, which is help with tuition fees, will be paid out during the time of study and will cover part of the fees for each course.

It’s bound to attract plenty of attention so anyone thinking of applying needs to be quick, scholarship applications close on June 30.

 There are plenty of options as far as majors are concerned; with Project Management, Human Resources, Operations and Production Management and Accounting all on offer.

Faculty Leader Catherine Lo-Giacco says both full-time and part-time students may apply for the scholarships.

“The applied nature of the degree means students can study and gain some practical experience in their final year of study.  It introduces students to prospective employers while allowing students to demonstrate their abilities as well.”

Catherine says other obvious advantages are that Taranaki-based students wishing to study a business degree in a face to face situation can now study in the region. “That’s  a real savings, for many,  while our industry-experienced tutors are able to  equip students  with the skills and expertise needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing business environment.’’

The scholarships are totally funded by WITT and remember, you do need to be a New Zealand Citizen, or be a permanent resident when applying.
