Waikato Management School offers a range of highly practical executive and corporate development training programmes. These are designed to meet the specific individual and organisational development needs of different industry sectors. Programmes are generally offered on a 'cohort' basis. Therefore, enrolment into individual papers is often not possible. In most cases it is not possible to cross-credit papers from these applied postgraduate programmes to or from undergraduate or graduate qualifications.


Initial enquiries about the MBA, MBM or specialised Corporate Programmes should be made to Executive Education at the Waikato Management School, phone +64 7 838 4833 or email execed@waikato.ac.nz.
