From the President

Welcome to the HBS Association of New Zealand – now in our 35th year!

While we celebrate this significant milestone, we will take the opportunity of reinforcing our mission, reviewing our past successes and setting a course for addressing our goals in today’s environment.

We continue to be a financial supporter of the Young Enterprise Trust (YET) of New Zealand. Annually we award an education scholarship to a senior student who performs in an outstanding fashion at the annual “Global Enterprise Challenge”, as well as making an operating grant to YET. YET’s various education and leadership development programs are featured at

Soon we will outline a calendar of events for this year, initiate several outreach mechanisms for alumni in NZ as well as students currently on campus, and begin investigating further means of fulfilling our mission.

The Board and I invite your comments and input, and we’d love to hear from anyone seeking information and contacts in New Zealand or Harvard itself. Contact us via the “Let us know…..” section or directly on
