Research and Business

The Otago Business School exists to push the boundaries of business knowledge and education. It is vital that we interact closely with the corporate world, to ensure that both our research and our teaching remain relevant to the current business environment. It is also important to us that we are able to ‘give back’ to the business community through our work.

We strongly encourage the business community to become involved in Otago Business School research activities. Staff or student researchers may be interested in any research suggestions you have.

Business staff research

Every academic staff member at the Otago Business School is a researcher. We welcome ideas from the community that have the potential for detailed investigation. One of our researchers may wish to take on a suggestion as a research project.

The Otago Business School has a range of research centres focusing on a particular discipline or domain, including the Centre for Entrepreneurship, Marketing Performance Centre, Centre for Business and the Environment, and Information Technology research centres.

Māori business is a growing research specialty. This research is developed in conjunction with business, iwi bodies and government agencies.

Visit our Research section for further information on Otago Business School research activities – or if you have a business question, concern or idea that may warrant investigation.

For more information, email the Business School: business@otago.ac.nz.

Business student research

Your business concern may be a perfect research project for a student or group of students. A number of School programmes and papers require students to conduct independent (supervised) research into a real business problem.

The research carried out varies in scope and depth of investigation, but all students involved in such projects are at an advanced level of study (fourth year or higher).

  • Accountancy
  • Business Administration
  • Economics
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Health Informatics
  • Hospitality

  • International Business
