The Master of Management is a 15-month coursework masters degree programme aimed at providing you with the practical skills and networks to support your successful entry into a business management oriented career with SMEs through to larger corporations.
Designed to add value to any bachelors degree, the Master of Management will prepare you for a career in general business. Graduates may find employment in a wide range of positions in the retail, manufacturing or service industries.
The Master of Management is a 15-month, 180-point programme studied over five quarters. You will study core business courses before selecting from one of four specialisation options in Business, Accounting, International Business or Marketing. You are able to confirm your choice of specialisation at the end of your second quarter of study.
You will also complete four professional development modules as an important component of your degree. These will equip you with the professional skills that you will need to enhance your employability and success in the business world.
To gain entry you will need to have completed a bachelors degree from a recognised university or learning institution with the equivalent of at least a New Zealand B average in the most advanced courses. This can be either a degree in business* or a non-business degree in a relevant discipline such as the arts, engineering, technology, or science.
In assessing your application we will take into account the ranking of the institution at which you completed your bachelor's degree as well as the grades achieved in the relevant subjects.
*Applicants who have completed advanced course(s) in an undergraduate degree which are considered substantially similar to courses in this programme will be required to complete substitute course(s). Advice will be provided to students on a case-by-case basis.
Our Business Masters programmes are taught entirely in English. You must, therefore, be able to understand, speak and write English fluently.
