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.

Skills employers need

The Organisational Technology Management major has been developed in conjunction with industry, which identified the need for managers in an IT environment to have not only fundamental technical capability, but great management and communication skills. The Master of Management works to give you those skills, ultimately contributing to your employability.

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 organisational technology management. This gives you a solid platform of knowledge to build on in your particular areas of interest.

Internationally recognised

Learn from leading business experts

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

Rigorous study

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.  It is a professional qualification.

Note, if you wish to progress to a PhD upon completion, Massey’s Master of Business is a research-based degree that is a better pathway to a doctorate.

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.

A good fit if you:

  • Have an undergraduate degree (not necessarily in business), and would like to study business areas in more depth
  • Would like to learn the skills that will help progress your career into management or a higher level of management, or
  • Would like to gain a qualification to help you make a career change into a technology-related area
  • Are interested in a professional practice qualification that is primarily a taught programme


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. Students can look forward to a middle level or senior position in technology management.

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.
