The business school plays an important role in educating the next generation of world-class public servants.
Wellington School of Business and Government is renowned for its influential and innovative teaching and research activity in the areas of Public Policy, Public Management, Public Administration, e-Government, Restorative Justice Practice, and Social Policy.
Our physical proximity to New Zealand’s seat of power and engagement across government has built a deep understanding of how government works.
The business school maintains connections and relationships across the public sector, enabling research that informs policy development and implementation. It plays an important role in educating the next generation of world-class public servants and in contributing to policy debates about what is best for New Zealand and the Asia–Pacific region.
