What is MARS@AUT

We are a student lead initiative with a focus on Marketing, Advertising, Retail and

Sales. We aspire to connect students with academics and industry professionals 

through workshops, events, projects and competitions. We have some of the 

brightest students at AUT onboard our ship and we are taking them all on a journey 

to become the next generation of innovative thinkers.

Evolution of MARS@AUT

Chantelle Lincoln and Megan Phillips saw a growing need for greater collaboration not only between students, academics and enterprise but also between the faculties across the university.

As Chantelle and Megan see it, “collaboration is the way of the future, it enables us to draw on others knowledge, information and experience, to help solve business problems, gain new ideas and perspective and to develop unique opportunities which may not have been gained without collaboration. With the creation of MARS@AUT we hope to provide a brighter future for all involved.”

MARS@AUT would not have been possible without the help and support of Ceapum KaushishAUT University and the Marketing, Advertising, Retailing and Sales Department at AUT so we would like to say a huge thank you for everything you have done and we look forward to the exciting explorations ahead.
