The Master of Management is a professional qualification, designed to increase your business knowledge to help you move up the hierarchy of your career, or make a career change.
What is it like?
Management involves both being able to work independently and make 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.
It is a relevant, contemporary qualification, with a unique core of courses that focus on the key business skills of communication, understanding current issues in business and on the fundamentals of the major you have chosen. This gives you a solid platform of knowledge to build on in your particular areas of interest.
Now available to complete in a shorter time (one year)
There is the ability in some specialisations (endorsements) to complete your study in just one calendar year instead of 18 months. This is available if you study the Master of Management at the Manawatū campus and complete your final course (Part Two) over Summer School. See the planning tab for more information.

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.
