The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG)

The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) was established as a not-for-profit company in 2002 with the vision of creating a world-leading educational institution that teaches strategic management and high-level policy to public sector leaders. Formed by a consortium of governments, universities and business schools from Australia and New Zealand, the School is also home to a substantial research program that aims to deepen government, community and academic understanding of public administration, policy and management.

Led by Professor John Wanna, who is based at the ANU Research School of Social Sciences, the program’s agenda is built on innovative and cutting edge research in partnership with the public sector and academia to:

  • contribute to continued public sector reform;
  • support development and transmission of good practice in both policy and management;
  • inform debate on key issues in public administration; and
  • maintain the quality and relevance of ANZSOG’s teaching.
