Our mission and values place a strong emphasis on both our student body and our scholarly community, and we work with both community and enterprise to advance the well-being of the peoples of Auckland and New Zealand, with a clear commitment to pursuing sustainability.
Housed in the state-of-the-art, architecturally designed Sir Owen G Glenn Building, our top-ranked, triple-crown accredited University of Auckland Business School is the largest business school in New Zealand and has an international reputation for academic excellence. The Business School comprises seven academic departments with a strong reputation across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
The University has recently set a new strategic plan, Taumata Teitei, which can be interpreted from te reo Māori as pursuing excellence, despite uncertainty. It recognises the exciting challenges posed by the concerns of our age.
