Katherine Stock was born in the UK but moved to New Zealand when she was 12. After completing high school she completed a Certificate in Travel, Tourism and Business through a private training institution. However, after completing this qualification she realised there was still so much more to learn, so when she heard from a friend that Otago Polytechnic offered multiple business programmes she did some research and decided to apply.
“I have loved my time at Otago Polytechnic. I have met some great people throughout the duration of my programme and all the tutors are so supportive and helpful. Overall, it has been a fantastic environment to be in while studying,” says Katherine.
Katherine has put her business acumen to good use working as a shift supervisor at Typo Dunedin. “I love my job as I get to work with a great team of people and sell products that I personally love. It’s a win-win situation.”
“I have much bigger career goals though and I am going to work hard to achieve them. I’m intending to move back to the UK – or maybe Australia – and get a job as a marketing executive.
“Being an Otago Polytechnic student has made me a more confident individual which will help me in the future.”
