Massey University’s Master of Management will give you an international perspective on management and business, building on your communication skills to learn how to work with management at a senior level.
Massey’s Master of Management is an internationally-recognised qualification. You will learn from our business experts - Massey University is the largest and one of the most highly respected management schools in New Zealand.
This master requires you to have an undergraduate degree, but this does not have to be on a business subject.
Learn from leading business experts
The Massey Business School is one of the country’s leading and largest business schools - it is ranked among the top two percent of business schools globally and is AACSB accredited.
Massey University’s business and management studies rank in the top 250 (by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) rankings). We are also ranked in the top 150 universities worldwide for business administration programmes by the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects.
You will learn from well-respected academics and business experts, gaining an international perspective on the major that you choose.
Specialisations to suit you
At Massey, you can choose from a broad range of specialisations to suit your interest, including HR, communication, enterprise development and more.
Take less of your time
You can now complete this qualification in 1.5 years of full-time study. If you study part-time the qualification takes between 2.5 and five years.
Develop appropriate management work styles
Management involves both being able to work independently and making management decisions, but also being able to work with and direct teams of people. Those people could be within your organisation, or external clients and stakeholders. The Master of Management study programme works with you to help develop these skills as well as specialist business capability in your endorsement of choice.
The Master of Management is a rigorous programme, where students are expected to achieve at a high level. This is reflected in the quality of our graduates, and contributes to the reputation of the qualification. If you wish to progress to a PhD upon completion, you should enrol in a Master of Business.
Why postgraduate study?
Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The workload of the Master of Management replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.
If you would like to progress into a management role, or are interested in progressing into a higher level of management, the Master of Management can facilitate this progression.
Sought after by employers
International trends are for employers to reward postgraduate study well, especially in larger enterprises. The skills you learn are increasingly recognised as setting you apart from other potential employees.

- Earnings and employment rates increase with the level of qualification completed
