Te Ranga Ngaku (TRN)
The network for Māori management students
Te Ranga Ngaku (TRN) is a network for Maori management students that was first formed in 2001 and became an incorporated society in 2006.
Membership is open to any Maori student currently undertaking studies at Waikato Management School, either part-time or full-time.
The kaupapa of this roopu is to encourage whakawhanaungatanga of all Maori students through manaakitanga, awhi and tautoko.
The vision of TRN is to foster academic achievement and excellence amongst Maori Management students.
The network supports and promotes the activities and interests of Maori Management students. TRN is governed by an executive committee.
TRN has its own study room in the Management Student Centre (MSC) and organises several activities and events eg Hakinakina, Noho marae and Haerenga.
Activities organised by Te Ranga Ngaku include social sports, an annual 'haerenga' - employer networking trip, regular network meetings, social functions and much more. We also have our own study room with computer and internet access to help you in your mahi throughout the semester.
TRN meets regularly with the Dean of the WMS, raising issues on behalf of tauira Maori.
TRN has a national reputation as the most active Maori student network in commerce and business, looking after our Maori tauira right through from study within the WMS, to corporate Aotearoa and beyond.
We are all here to make sure that we succeed academically, build our connections with the corporate world for mahi when we finish, and most of all, have an awesome time while we do it!!
Come and have a korero, meet the whanau and get involved.
