Dr Tanya Jurado PhD, PGDipBus, MA (Hons), BA

Lecturer

School of Management

I hold a PhD and a Diploma in Business and Administration in Management from Massey, and a BA and MA (Hons) in History from Auckland University. I currently teach Business Model Innovation for the Bachelor of Business, and Current Issues in Business for the Master of Management. Previously, I have taught Corporate Strategy and Organisational Behaviour at the Australian National University, and Entrepreneurship, New Venture Project and Enterprise Development at Massey.

My interest and research into SMEs dates back to 2004 when I joined the NZ Centre for SME Research. Since then I have undertaken research and analysis for the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the (former) Ministry for Economic Development and the Inland Revenue. My published work is primarily on SME policy, management capability, internationalization and entrepreneurship.

I am a Research Associate at Te Au Rangahau and a Visiting Fellow at the Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development Research Group at Portsmouth University. I currently sit on the board of the Small Enterprise Association of Australia and New Zealand and am co-Chair of the Entrepreneurship, Start-Ups and Small Business stream of the 2019 ANZAM Conference.

Tanya is a lecturer in the School of Management. Her research focus is on the role of SMEs amidst the global challenges faced by economies worldwide. A secondary interest is in gender inclusion in IT professions. She is currently working on projects dealing with SME internationalisation and trade policy; indigenous entrepreneurship; and public policy support for SMEs. She is also part of a research team researching the participation and retention of women in information technology professions. Tanya has taught courses on entrepreneurship, strategy, management and organisational behaviour.
