The University of Canterbury has renewed it’s Partnership Agreement with the Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce (The Chamber) for another year.

“We greatly value our partnership with the UC Business School and are very pleased to announce the renewal of our Partnership Agreement for another year. This enables us to utilise the skills, knowledge and experience of experts in the business field to help inform our organisation and our members on key issues, such as the future of work.  It also enables us to play a role in helping to shape the business leaders of tomorrow through providing insight and connections with the business community, reinforcing our key driver of partnering for impact.” – Leeann Watson, Chief Executive, The Chamber
