For teachers

Assembly for international visiting teachers

UC Business School's Outreach Programme is based on assisting and supporting the community with events and resources. The programme has a full-time staff member available to support you and assist you with any enquiries or during an event at UC.

The key aims of the programme are:

  • To encourage an appreciation of the business world.
  • To emphasise both the satisfaction and exciting career opportunities that tertiary level commerce provides.
  • To support school communities in teaching business.
  • To develop New Zealand's future business leaders.


We produce a range of posters for schools to use on classroom walls.  Download them direct or contact us if you would like an A2 set of posters sent to your school.
