NZMA Accreditation and Articulation: important credentials

NZMA is an accredited vocational and higher learning organisation, which ensures every Certificate, Diploma and Degree we award is relevant, recognised, and respected.

Accreditation and Articulation is the domestic and international recognition of a curriculum and program quality standard in respect to recognised levels, and standards of professional knowledge, skills and understanding.

This is critical, and here's why:

  1. Accreditation is an assurance to learners, employers, and other stakeholders that an education entitiy meets or exceeds quality standards.
  2. Accreditations may be awarded by Government Agencies or Professional Associations.
  3. Articulation provides recognition of previous study towards higher qualifications.

NZMA has “Articulation” agreements with these organisations:

AUT  Students that successfully complete the Diploma in Applied Hospitality Management Level 6 will gain 180 points (equivalent of three semesters) towards AUT University’s Bachelor of International Hospitality Management.

HTMi Switzerland Students that complete NZMA’s Level 6 Diploma in Applied Hospitality Management and the Level 7 Diploma in Tourism and Hotel Management will also be awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Events and Hotel Management from the Hotel and Tourism Management Institute (HTMi) in Switzerland.

IMI Switzerland Students that complete NZMA’s Level 5 Diploma in Professional Cookery will gain direct entry into the second year of IMI’s Bachelor of Arts in International Culinary Arts in Switzerland.

NZMA is “Accredited” and registered with these organisations:
