What our students say

Success stories

Take some time to read what former students say about our course. The Business Management Programmes are brought to you by the team at Cornerstone Education Ltd ( part of Aspire2 Group Limited ).

Des Nunneley
"I just wanted to thank you for all the work that goes on behind the scene to keep us, the students, moving along and winning as we go. Every now and then I felt I am to old to be bothering with this, its for the youngsters, and then I would spend time with my books and just be so stimulated and off I would go again. Within a week of finishing the last module, I have had to prepare a Business Plan for the bank to buy a business and it felt really good to be able to sit down and do it with confidence. I would really not have known how without this course. Now I need to survey the public and make a marketing plan and again the course has put things in place for me which will be a factor in the success of my new business, so really, thank you and I appreciate everything done to keep me focused and on track."

"It's been 10 months of challenging tasks, but now it's a pleasant feeling to know that I have a formal New Zealand qualification to support my frontline manager position. The university I graduated in Romania 10 years ago helped me a lot but I still have learnt heaps of useful and interesting things and considering the price, the course it's a real bargain. I recommend this course to anyone who has a bit of time to spend and the ambition to succeed. "

"When looking for a new job I found many I knew I could do, but without a formal qualification on my CV was unable to apply for them. I was lucky enough to get a good job that I really enjoy but don't want to find myself in that position again. If I want to move on or apply for a promotion I now have the qualification and confidence to go for it. The low course fees and being able to study at home was great. I was nervous at the start as I had not done this sort of study since my nurses training 30 years ago, but the support from Lorayne and the tutors was excellent especially when I was struggling with a couple of topics, they answered all my questions and gave good advice to get me through. I have learnt so much from this course I can use not only in my job but also in everyday personal situations."

"I thought this course would be easy, after 47 years I though I knew it all, (well most anyway). Boy was I wrong. I have learnt so much from this programme and am really really pleased I have managed to finish.It's been a really tough year in my personal and professional life. I could have thrown in the towel several times and my poor husband had to pick up the toys on more than one occasion. You must understand though, I am a tough task master. I like to get A's and push myself hard. I would never have been able to forgive myself if I had given up. So here's to the team that helped me get through with support, guidance and that dreaded feedback (never as bad as you think). I'm on my way to a better future thanks to you guys, cheers!"

"Akin too many I have gradually progressed into managing things, be they budgets, people or assets through the course of my career. After a while you find yourself with a number of years experience but no formal qualifications, and possibly a few holes in your understanding. I saw the Cornerstone Education course advertised in our local newspaper and thought that this would be the best way to start filling in the gaps. With the low administration fee I felt I had nothing to lose. The course offered a grounding in everything that I wanted, management techniques, communication skills, finance and so much more. The content was good and the ability to study by correspondence even better. The Cornerstone Education team have put together a good course and delivered it excellently. I would certainly recommend the course to others wishing to advance their skills. Being a relatively new immigrant to New Zealand an ulterior motive for taking the course was to show on my curriculum vitae that I am continuing my learning after immigration, with a completed New Zealand course. I am more than pleased to add the "NZIM Certificate in management" to my list of qualifications. Between what I have learnt and the nationally recognized qualification, I feel this course has certainly strengthened my future prospects."
