Research and teaching
UC Business School is committed to providing a supportive and vibrant research environment.
Our academic staff are involved in a number of research areas and continue to produce and publish works that have significant impact and relevance in the fields of business.
Research by the UC Business School not only informs teaching, it is often a part of student learning, and postgraduate students regularly are part of inquiries and projects. It also leads to publications in various academic, professional and popular forums. Our staff regularly present papers at academic conferences in New Zealand and overseas.
