Gertrude Appiagyei

Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Management

Ghana

 

Postgraduate student Gertrude Appiagyei is enjoying the peaceful lifestyle here in New Zealand.

Gertrude came from Ghana, a country of 28 million people, to New Zealand, which has under five million.

She says she loves it here in Auckland and particularly likes that there are people from a lot of different backgrounds.

“It’s a very highly multicultural city and it’s peaceful.”

There’s even a small community of Ghanaians here, she says.

Friends back home love seeing Gertrude’s posts on social media. Now they want to come and see New Zealand for themselves.

“It’s a good country and anything you see in US or UK, it’s also here,” says Gertrude.

Gertrude worked as a primary school teacher for six years back in Ghana and completed a Bachelor of Science in business administration there focusing on marketing.

She came to New Zealand to join her husband who was completing his PhD here, then started looking for a qualification that would complement her bachelor’s degree.

OPAIC offered the most suitable programme- the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Management.

Gertrude says she loves the programme. The lecturers are very helpful and guide students through their assignments.

 “We learn in teams and that’s one very good thing about the course.”

Gertrude and her husband enjoy living in a quiet suburb of Auckland but she also likes coming into the city centre for her classes.

Hear Gertrude speak about her OPAIC experience over on Youtube.
