Matthew Cooper


He’s been an All Black and is currently a CEO with a six million dollar budget, but Matthew Cooper decided he needed to get some formal qualifications next to his name.

Obviously living and working in Hamilton it was convenient to come to Waikato to study, but what sold me was the Management School’s reputation. I knew I’d be challenged and that what I learnt in the lecture theatre would be applicable at work."

Matthew heads Sport Waikato, overseeing a staff of 70 who are tasked with getting and keeping the people of the Waikato and Coromandel regions active; all 382,000 of them.

Papers cover the whole gamut of management disciplines – economics and finance, strategy, human resources, communication and the content can easily be adapted to your own working environment. The other thing is the people you meet. We were a mixed bunch who brought a variety of perspectives to class. We were forced to test your own thinking, and learned to think more broadly.

“I think my decision to study sent a strong signal to staff – that you can never stop learning. So I hope they’ll be motivated to stick their hands up and take advantage of any professional development opportunities that come their way.”.
