Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct Faculty of the School are those individuals who are recognised as being experts in their chosen field and who also have the ability to communicate their knowledge and experience to a wider audience. They are people who want to give something back to New Zealand through a sharing of their experience based on their many decades of work within exporting.

The role of an Adjunct Faculty member within the School, is one that allows us to draw on the wisdom of leading figures in New Zealand in order to improve what we teach based on real-life and the practical aspects of what actually happens in exporting.

Adjunct Faculty can also be approached - via the School - to give specialist advice (on a paid or unpaid basis), run workshops, act as guest speakers, sit on Boards or to undertake other activities as they see fit.
