Regulations for the PhD

Read up on the regulations for the PhD.

Waikato Management School welcomes applications that potentially align with staff research interests.

However, please note that an MBA qualification or similar is not by itself regarded as adequate postgraduate training for the purpose of PhD study.

A more specialised masters qualification is regarded as a more appropriate background for a successful application.
