Research Vision Statement

NZIE is committed to providing high-quality postgraduate education in applied business management and leadership facilitated by research-active practitioners.

Research Purpose

NZIE’s research purpose is twofold:

  • Maintaining strong recognition as an applied business school, and
  • Applying the principles of applied research, alongside innovative learning applications to our teaching methods.

Our core focus is on applied research. This means topics should have practical implications while being based on gaps in the literature and differentiates us from other research-active PTEs, whose research mainly focuses on topics related to education.

The applied research undertaken will, furthermore, ensure we do not lose track of recent developments in the industry, thereby enhancing our teaching. Moreover, by focusing on research related to education, we can assist learners by providing innovative learning applications.

Defining Research at NZIE

Our primary research fields link to NZIE’s core teaching areas, which are management, leadership, marketing and human resource management. Alongside the focus on our core teaching areas, NZIE maintains a strong interest in research related to all aspects of tertiary education.

NZIE’s research is guided by our five core values: Innovation, Simplicity, Performance-driven, Resilience, and Collaboration.
NZIE’s applied research focus aims to build a bridge between academic concepts and practically relevant topics. The aim of practical relevance is business applications that are innovative, yet simple to implement.

Research at NZIE is performance-driven and therefore has a measurable impact on the wider business and academic community. Furthermore, all research undertaken by NZIE is resilient in that it recovers quickly from obstacles.

NZIE values diversity and creativity shared through collaborative work. We also value student and staff collaboration. The collaborative research undertaken is performance-driven and will be scrutinised in the peer review process (both internally and externally) which ensures that our research maintains high academic standards.
