Waikato Management School’s Research Strategy 

Waikato Management School’s research strategy is to produce world-class theoretical, applied and practice-relevant research. Our emphasis is upon knowledge creation, integration and dissemination to achieve transformation of organisations nationally and internationally. The major strategic goals and objectives for Waikato Management School's research include - 1) Generating excellent research in all Departments; 2) Facilitating international research collaborations; 3) Establishing research profiles by engaging with key stakeholders; 4) Generating significant external research funding in all Departments; 5) Developing research capacity of staff and doctoral students; and 6) Providing effective research support

The School’s research aims to increase knowledge and shape management theory, improve business practice, and inform public policy in New Zealand and around the globe. We work collaboratively with many international scholars, and a wide range of business, government and community groups. 

We use our latest research to inform our teaching programmes with new theories, analysis and case studies that are directly relevant to New Zealand and the global markets in which we operate. In this way, our research serves as an integrator of the School’s activities by bridging between teaching and practice. 

The Research Brochure is an overview of research within the Waikato Management School, as well as highlighting a few of our larger research programmes. For a summary of the areas of research expertise in our eight departments, please see pages 24-27. More information is available on our School’s research website and department web pages.
