Queensland University of Technology

The BPM (Business Process Management) Group at QUT is one of the largest BPM research groups in the world with impressive academic achievements, significant third-party funded research projects and major industry linkages.

We have a vibrant research team consisting of more than 40 members, combining expertise from Business, Information Systems and Computer Science. This internationally unique expertise enables us to approach BPM-related issues in a multi-disciplinary way. The team consists of 4 Professors, 7 academic staff and Postdoctoral researchers, research assistants, and more than 18 research students (PhD, Masters, Honours). We maintain close links with other research groups within the Faculty of Science and Technology. For example, we work with multimedia experts on issues related to process visualisation and with Information Systems researchers on issues related to enterprise culture and process change. We also have a very close collaboration with QUT’s Faculty of Creative Industries as part of an ARC Centre of Excellence. The focus here is on the application of BPM in the Screen Business.

Our vision is to be the global innovator and educator in the area of BPM, and to draw from and positively impact industry and the community via the conduct and transfer of research following highest standards.

University of Waikato

From modest beginnings on what was largely farmland, the University of Waikato has grown to a student population of about 13,000 of whom more than 4800 complete a qualification annually. Today the University employs 2000 academic and support staff, making a significant contribution to the local and national economy.

We are committed to delivering a world-class education and research portfolio, providing a full and dynamic university experience, distinctive in character, and pursuing strong international links to advance knowledge.

Since our earliest days we have worked closely with iwi, particularly Tainui, to make the University accessible to Maori students and to foster an environment of success. We are proud of our evolution into a truly New Zealand institution, supporting our country's nation-building policies and reflecting our nation's identity.
