Tūhono Programme

21 September 2023

Tūhono is an extra-curricular programme that enables Te Kura Umanga | UC Business School students to connect across cultures on campus and develop cultural intelligence.


Applications closed for 2024.


In te reo Māori, the kupu (word) ‘tūhono’ means to connect or join. Over the course of six meetings, the Tūhono programme connects students from a diverse range of nationalities and cultures. Not only is this a great opportunity to meet new people, but the programme is designed to help you develop your cultural intelligence (CQ). 

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is a person's capability to function effectively in culturally diverse situations. Graduates today will inevitably work in culturally diverse organisations and teams. Cultural diversity is associated with increased opportunities for innovation and other benefits, but also greater potential for misunderstanding and associated challenges; therefore, it is essential that students develop the capability to function effectively in culturally diverse situations.
