    About MOBTS-Oceania: A community of Management Educators

    The MOBTS-Oceania group emerged from the energy and enthusiasm fostered during the 2020 MOBTS International Conference in Christchurch, New Zealand. During this conference many ideas, teaching innovations, and challenges were shared amongst educators in this region. We wanted to harness this energy and create a dedicated group focused on bringing the spirit of MOBTS to the region, to foster teaching innovations in the management domain, and come together as educators.
