International - Welcome
Kia ora and welcome to Waikato Management School
Waikato Management School introduced New Zealand's first four-year business degree when it first opened in 1972, in line with North American benchmarks of management education excellence.
More than 40 years later, our Bachelor of Management Studies degree remains highly sought-after by employers. Waikato was also the first business school in New Zealand to introduce a specialist e-commerce degree, the Bachelor of Electronic Commerce.
We offer a comprehensive range of qualifications at undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels. Our programmes are renowned for their practical focus, relevance to the real world, and their foundation in leading-edge business research.
Waikato Management School's close relationship with the business community encompasses education, research and advisory services. Our academics act as consultants to major companies, and sit alongside senior executives on advisory boards and government taskforces.
The Waikato Management School's Executive Education offers a range of highly regarded executive and corporate development programmes, including programmes specially tailored for our corporate partners.
The School's Business Advisory Board - a body made up of senior executives and board members from throughout New Zealand - provides ongoing guidance to senior management on sector trends, programme relevance and business strategy.
Here at Waikato Management School we have a big community of international students from different countries and we welcome more international students to join our big family!
