The Waikato-Tainui MBA from the University of Waikato Management School in New Zealand aims to foster Maori values and Indigenous ways of doing business. Unlike other MBAs, the Waikato-Tainui MBA has been contextualised with an Indigenous focus within a supportive Māori environment. It allows participants to explore real world business challenges that involve and are relevant to Indigenous business and industry. The uniqueness of this programme is its mode of delivery. It is delivered in ‘waananga,’ or residential mode, from the College’s premises in a rich cultural environment that provides a holistic and collaborative atmosphere for participants, which is conducive to the way Māori learn. One element of the programme that makes it unique is that whaanau (family) of the participants are invited to attend a number of events during the programme, allowing collective interaction.
