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.

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.
