It's official - Waikato Management School's academic programmes are world-class.

Waikato Management School leads the country for having the greatest number of business subjects ranked in the world’s top 250 universities.

Four of the business subject areas offered at Waikato have been ranked in the world’s top 250 universities, out of more than 4,400 institutions in 126 countries, according to the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017.

The results demonstrate the all-round international calibre of academic programmes at Waikato Management School, across a wide range of business disciplines.
