Tony Gray, Chief Executive of NMIT, with Bachelor of Commerce graduates.

“I wanted the best course that would help me get the best job and NMIT’s Graduate Diploma in IT was it. NMIT were really up to date and we were using the latest technology. We also went to companies like IBM and WETA Digital and learnt how those companies work, which was great too. Good study and job opportunities are rare so when you do get them, you have to nail them. I got those opportunities here in Nelson.” Arun Kumar, India - Graduate Diploma in Information Technology, PROGRAMMER/ANALYST, NELSON BAYS PRIMARY HEALTH, NELSON, NZ
