Career prospects in New Zealand and the world

The global ICT industry is projected to grow by US$1.3 trillion between 2013 and 2020. It’s the same story in New Zealand, with technology being the country’s fastest growing sector. Since 2008 exports have doubled with technology now being the country’s third largest export earner behind dairy and tourism.

A booming sector needs graduates with the ability to meet all of the opportunities on offer. The ICT Graduate School has been established to meet the need for well-qualified, industry-ready graduates, ready to step into ICT roles at a wide range of enterprises.

With a postgraduate qualification from the Auckland ICT Graduate School you will be perfectly placed to develop your career with one of the fast-growing technology companies in the sector, or perhaps become the ICT expert within a corporate that is deploying technology. Alternatively, you may choose to forge a path as an entrepreneur and create your own future. The training you receive at the ICT Graduate School will serve you well in all these career pathways.
