Maori Studies

With the settlement of Treaty of Waitangi claims, iwi are now custodians of very significant assets – economic, environmental and cultural. There is a strong demand for employees with experience in the area of Māori development both within the Waiariki rohe and throughout New Zealand, with seemingly endless career options for graduates who have a passion for the development of Māori people. Māori organisations will increasingly rely on competent managers, team leaders, mentors and staff at all levels in order to operate efficiently and successfully.
