The Department of Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship is one of the leading business departments in New Zealand. 

Our research in the area of Sustainability and Innovation includes Certification and Biodiversity, and Enhancing the Credibility and Value of ISO9000/14000 Certification.

The Water Markets Research Group, Wai Makete Rangahau Ropu (WMRG) is a group of researchers studying smart markets for hydrological resources. We have developed smart market concepts for ground and surface water, nitrate runoff, phosphorus runoff, sediment runoff, and impervious cover. The use of a smart market simplifies the process of reallocating water, solving the problems of “first come first served”, while ensuring environmental sustainability.
