Nicely put "..has an MBA, and a Masters of Public Administration from Harvard’s John F Kennedy School of Government." Looks like a Harvard MBA at first glance.

I suspect otherwise however and would be immediately suspicious of anyone who tried to confuse like that.

Hmmm...A Ginga....and a made up maori first name...if I remember rightly he has always been known as Angus.

Yep, that must be it a fake Maori...those Ngai Tahu fellas aren't going to take kindly to a fake maori.

Sad mate - it is a Harvard Masters Degree, the John F Kennedy School of Government is part of Harvard University, and the MPA (don't confuse the B and P) is a two year degree course just like the MBA.
Similar in structure too, as it seems to be Case (rather than lesson) based.
I think it a bit better than an MBA from Victoria with a Public Administrtation major!

Come off it Whaleoil, at Ngai Tahu being a fake Maori gets you to the top quicker you might end up running the whakapapa unit.
