The Wellington ICT Graduate School works alongside academia to bridge gaps with industry and disrupt the traditional system. An initiative developed by Wellington's three leading tertiary establishments (Victoria University, WelTEC and Whitireia), the Wellington ICT Grad School seeks to advance and support the development of ICT skill and talent throughout New Zealand. Five Master's-level degrees are taught, developing students in the areas of software development, business analysis, user experience design and VFX. The Wellington ICT Grad School has a joint industry and academic board and its central team is located in downtown Wellington.
