Nā Kukui Netlinks

Started in 1995, Nā Kukui Netlinks (formerly Netlinks) creates a way for TIM students to network with industry professionals. The event aims to bring together the industry leaders of today with the future leaders of tomorrow. It creates a friendly environment in which students may network and receive advice from industry professionals that are willing to share their experiences.


Over the years, Nā Kukui Netlinks has not only become a great networking event for our students but has also become an event planned by our students. Since 2009, students in our TIM 316: Special Events Management course have planned this event from start to finish with the support of TIM alumni association, TIM International, Inc. 


Along with a night of networking, the evening also includes a presentation of our Outstanding TIM Student Awards.  These awards simply highlight the leadership and academic accomplishments of our esteemed students and faculty.
