Business and economics

Study business and economics at AUT and you’ll develop the skills, knowledge and values needed to navigate your career journey. Our business and economics graduates are ready to challenge routine thinking, put forward innovative solutions and make positive social change.

The AUT Business School and the School of Economics are internationally ranked and globally recognised, and our graduates are shaping successful careers all around the world.

Professional postgraduate programmes

These programmes are taught in class, and are designed to accelerate your professional career or take it in a new direction entirely.

Research postgraduate programmes

These programmes involve advanced learning by conducting research, which will give you specialised knowledge in an area you've previously studied and transferable skills to stand out in the highly competitive employment market.

The Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Business don't include a research project, but can serve as a pathway into the Master of Business research degree.

A certificate or diploma will give you an introduction to your chosen subject and can prepare you for further study.

A short course will develop your skills and knowledge in an area of personal or professional interest.

Research in business and economics

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across business and economics.
