What will I learn?

The Master of Management will increase your business knowledge to help move your career in a new direction. You don’t have to have a qualification in business to undertake this master’s.

The Master of Management is a professional, relevant and contemporary qualification.

It has a unique core of courses that focus on key business skills like communication, leading and working in teams, and current issues in business.

Financial economics concentrates on decision-making under uncertainty. These decisions are applied to a variety of capital markets and asset-pricing. There is a greater emphasis on the role of information for economic co-ordination and organisations. You will build upon your undergraduate studies to gain an international perspective on management.

You will learn from our business experts – Massey University has the largest and one of the most highly respected management schools in New Zealand.
