Abstract: The core of a sustainable social and economic development of any nation is education. A key issue in Aotearoa New Zealand is the development of education for Maori. Historically, there have been significant problems for Maori to achieve education goals. Current education policies seek to foster and develop education for Maori as a means of creating an education for a sustainable future. The purpose of this exploratory study is to investigate the effectiveness of such policies.

Keywords: tertiary education; Maori participation; sustainable future; sustainable development; sustainability; New Zealand; business education; education policy.
