Victoria University of Wellington, Victoria Business School

Victoria Business School (VBS) is a capital city business school, located in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand's thriving capital city. VBS has a long-standing history of academic excellence, is internationally recognised and holds the prestigious “Triple Crown” of accreditations with AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. It is a constituent faculty of Victoria University of Wellington, the leading research university in NZ. VBS is similarly distinguished by its high quality scholarly and applied research and teaching, and connections to the business, government, and community sectors. As a capital city, Wellington is a centre for the diplomatic corps, arts and culture, public administration, politics and finance, and hosts the head offices of many businesses. VBS has developed and maintains excellent relationships with many of the corporate leaders, financial institutions, government agencies and policy makers in the city to develop mutually beneficial partnerships. In addition, VBS has a long-standing reputation as a business school committed to preparing graduates for employment opportunities in a wide range of business, public and community enterprises within New Zealand and overseas. In all these respects, VBS is distinguished as much by how it seeks to contribute to the performance of government, the policy environment for business, as to the performance of business itself. This triad of activities related to business and government is reflected in the School’s mission: “Victoria Business School creates and shares knowledge of governance and management of resources in the public and private sectors to develop capability and provide our stakeholders with a global perspective”
