20th Annual Student Research Symposium

Monday, 20 August 2018, Hamilton, New Zealand

We invite postgraduate students in management and related disciplines throughout New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific to participate in this year's Waikato Management School Student Research Symposium.

This annual conference is a great opportunity for postgraduate students to share the results of their research in a friendly and supportive environment, and receive constructive feedback from senior academics.

Full papers will be peer-reviewed for the Best Paper Award of $1,000, with preference given to sole-authored papers. Accepted full papers and extended abstracts will be included in the symposium proceedings.

Postgraduate students includes those studying at Masters or Doctoral level.

You are now invited to submit:

  • A full research paper (4000 words or less, including a 100-word abstract); OR
  • An extended research abstract (700 - 1000 words).

Your paper / abstract may cover any part of your thesis research (literature review; research questions; methodology; data collection / analysis; findings and conclusions). Or you may focus on an issue that you are currently working on.

We look forward to seeing you there!
