The Business Bachelor training program specializing in Economics and Finance, will take place in 2009. In this program, students will have the opportunity to learn entirely in English. Three eighths of specialized subjects are to be taught by the Massey University faculty and students will be tutored in English in order to satisfy all English requirements to continue the next 2 years in New Zealand.

At the end of the course, the students will be awarded exactly the same diploma as any other students who study and complete the entire program in New Zealand.
