School of Government

New Zealand's only School of Government undertakes teaching and research on public policy and public administration/management.

Through Victoria Business School, we offer a complete range of undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional programmes. Based at the Pipitea Campus in Rutherford House, directly across the road from the seat of government, Parliament, Ministerial Headquarters and Government Departments, the School is ideally placed to help build capacity in the public sector of New Zealand.
