Management Systems is available as a postgraduate subject only.
Large businesses and organisations used to be structured as independent 'silos', with little cohesion - such as marketing, finance, accounting, and distribution - but that approach doesn't work anymore. Like a good team captain, a good management system brings different elements and individuals together for a common purpose.
You'll learn about creating and maintaining operational efficiencies for business excellence through web-based technologies; strong information channels that deliver the data necessary for decision-making; and fluid supply-chains, ensuring well-connected flows of materials.
Waikato is ranked in the world's top 150 universities for Accounting, Finance, and Business and Management Studies, by the prestigious QS Subject Rankings.
You'll study at our internationally recognised Waikato Management School, which has Triple Crown Accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, placing it in the top 1% of all business schools worldwide.
