Bringing together historians of business, labour, economic, accounting, mining, transport and other areas in business to promote historical research and teaching.

About AAHANZBS

The Academic Association of Historians in Australian and New Zealand Business Schools (AAHANZBS) was launched in 2009 with the support of the Business and Labour History Group, and the University of Sydney Business School.

It aims to bring together historians of business, labour, economic, accounting, mining, transport and other areas in business and management schools in Australia and New Zealand together to promote historical research and teaching. 

We hold an annual conference with sessions on research and teaching and a postgraduate forum. We also seek research grants and publication in highly regarded journals.
