Our staff are an international group with PhDs from universities across the globe, including the University of Wisconsin, the National University of Singapore, Yale University, AUT, the University of Technology Sydney and the University of Minnesota.
We are proud of our established record and on-going commitment to excellent research, high-quality supervision, and community and professional engagement. Members of the School sit on editorial boards and serve as referees for professional journals.
They also work as consultants and provide expert advice in both the private and public sectors, both in New Zealand and internationally. This wealth of experience provides an ideal background for the supervision of student research.

The School of Economics is also home to the Centre for Social Data Analytics (CSDA). The CSDA designs data analytic tools for social impact, working with various public sector clients in New Zealand and overseas. Many of our postgraduate students get involved with the work of the CSDA.
All Bachelor of Business (Honours) and Master of Business students complete a research project – either a 45-point dissertation or a 90-point thesis. An academic staff member from the School of Economics will supervise your research.
