Te Raupapa Waikato Management School

Waikato Management School runs a number of key events every year that are open to secondary school students, teachers, and the general public.

These provide a great opportunity to discover the business qualifications that we offer, learn what kind of skills you will develop while studying here, and how these will enhance your future career prospects.

We also showcase some of the country’s leading economists, business leaders and policy experts at our annual New Zealand Economics Forum.
