About this program

AUT communications students and graduates are internationally recognised, having won the Sally Logan-Milne Young Practitioner of the Year award, CAANZ AXIS award, ORCA awards, Cannes International Advertising award and NZ Student Marketer of the Year award.

The creative industries are crucial to national development.

There’s a need for people who can take creative ideas from the drawing board to the marketplace.
