to understand, study and prosper in new zealand
I have worked voluntarily as Consultant for Export at Asosiasi UKM Mutiara Timur (The Association of Mutiara Timur SME) in Makassar. The members of the association are local small medium entrepreneurs having range of commodities or products. As the association's consultant, I hope to gain advanced skills and knowledge in international marketing strategy & plan especially in a digital way as a part of technology intervention in doing proper business strategies, analyzing or understanding markets and consumers' behavior overseas, pricing and costing, designing product packaging that attracts the market, and effective communication & relationship management in multicultural contexts.
Therefore, I am applying for Master of Marketing at University of Auckland as my option one and Master of Marketing at Auckland University of Technology after doing deep research about the courses and subjects offered by these institutions which are closely in line with my expected study objective as stated above.
By studying in New Zealand, I also hope to gain more understanding about some of their daily business languages & cultures. Sometimes we need to understand and adjust with buyers' local customs in doing business starting from marketing stage, negotiation, until closing deal stage.
Furthermore, I need to create good networking with people, especially the entrepreneurs in New Zealand as those people might become potential buyers of our commodities or products.
Last but not least I need to identify and find out list of commodities that are highly demanded in New Zealand.
