                                                   business-related project with a local business and offers students a way to transition from university to the
                                                   work force. The students spend 180 hours working within the business on a pre-defined project. These
                                                   projects are identified by the business and have included, for example, community profiling, developing

                                                   of the year is spent with the organisation, with class sessions taking place four to six times a semester. The

                                                   The success of the internship is best captured by the students’ own reflections: “This internship is the
                                                   most valuable thing that I have done in my three years of university and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole

and students.

 To achieve the ambitious goals set out in The Road to
 2020, we must create an innovative and adaptive culture
 – a culture that embraces change, delivers tangible
 results, and brings the University community together
 to make Massey New Zealand’s defining university. To
 create this desired culture it is imperative that we have
 an atmosphere of trust where our people understand
 the strategy and what it means for them and how they
 can contribute to its achievement. It is imperative that
 leadership is encouraged throughout all units at all levels
 across colleges, campuses and services.

 Many of the elements needed are already present - we
 need simply to enhance and advance them.

Defining Massey: Massey Defining

We have mapped out a strategy for Massey that is intended to shape the
University and our work for the next 10 years. This strategy offers new
initiatives and builds on what already exists. For this strategy to succeed,
we need to reaffirm the commitment to change that has already served
the University so well. Our aim is to consolidate Massey’s position as New
Zealand’s defining university and as a world leader of tertiary learning.

This strategy is not everything. We expect to take opportunities as they arise
and maintain our reputation for responding to new challenges. This has always
been the Massey way. We do not expect the future to be limited to the actions
outlined here. There will always be more…
