Some are studying the management of innovation, some are in the VicPlus programme that recognizes volunteer effort and leadership, and some are members of the Victoria International Leadership Programme.  Students are eligible to win the Victoria Business School Champion Team Award with NZ$1000 for each member of the winning team..

HostingNZSaved the Day

Cross cultural communications and translating languages is a tough challenge for GeeBiz participants in diverse parts of the world - but it is also tricky for pieces of software written in different programming languages running on different systems.  We threw HostingNZ the challenge of collecting up these mismatched, non-communicating programmes into their hosting site and turning them into a perfect enrolment system while keeping the old system going.  Thanks to Stu and his team at for digging deep to get it all going when most people would have switched off the lights and gone home.  Your professionalism and dedication is greatly appreciated.
