AUT Business School is one of the largest business schools in New Zealand. The campus itself is conveniently located in the city center. The focus at AUT University is providing a pragmatic 'real world' approach to business, ensuring excellence in learning and teaching and developing outstanding graduates for professional practice in business. The classes are small, usually 20-30 students, providing an interactive learning environment with emphasis on the integration of theory and business practice. Academic staff work closely with students, providing guidance and advice for their study and research, and the university's close links with industry mean that coursework and research are relevant to professional practice.
Auckland is located in the northern part of the North Island. It is New Zealand's largest and most cosmopolitan city with a population of 1.2 million and 27% born in other countries. The urban area is twice the size of London, and the city has a wide mix of cultures. Theatre, art and leading–edge fashion provide an array of cosmopolitan experiences. Auckland's climate is mild. From December to March (summer), the average temperature ranges between 68 and 77˚F. From June to August (winter), the average temperature range is between 50 and 59˚F.
