New Zealand Applied Business Education Conference

Assisted by the Business Co-ordination Forum, the host coordinates The New Zealand Applied Business Education Conference. The annual conference focuses on business education in the Institute of Technology and Polytechnic sector. The aim of the conference is to engage in collaborative activities and networking with the intention of increasing the quality of business teaching and research within the sector. Dissemination of applied business knowledge takes place regarding scholarship, research, teaching, and curriculums. The conference aims to provide an inclusive participatory forum that will encourage academics and practitioners to share their research, insights and experiences.

The conference is hosted by a different ITP each year throughout New Zealand. In 2002 the conference incorporated the New Zealand Diploma in Business. The conference maintains the link with the New Zealand Diploma in Business with subject forums as well as identifying unique or modern approaches to teaching business, and with presentations regarding discipline related research. Research papers submissions can be blind refereed, non-refereed, workshops, or poster presentations. In 2002 papers submitted to the conference were also considered for the inaugural issue of the NZ Journal of Applied Business Research
