You'll find out how companies successfully compete in the global business environment, and examine modern management theory and practice and marketing strategy. Graduates will be able to find solutions to problems at a global strategic level.

If you want to complete a Master's with a focus on professional skills, rather than research, then the MGMgmt and the MGMktg are good options for you.

Your courses are grouped into five parts—four sets of taught courses and a professional development programme.

Core Courses—Get a grounding in commercial law, economics and markets, how organisations work, technology and information systems, problem solving and decision making, and accounting for managers.

Elective Courses—Choose two courses from a range of options that allow you to focus in more detail on areas that most interest you and most benefit your career (the courses you can do depend on demand, faculty resources and timetabling).

What you'll study

The MPM will give you the skills and capability to understand the theory and practice of public management and boost your performance as a manager.

Your studies will include:

  1. Three foundation courses that examine government and governing in modern societies, government and the economy, and policy and management practice.

The Diploma programme requires you do seven foundation and core courses and one more course of your choice, and Certificate students do four foundation and core courses.

How you'll learn

Courses are delivered in a Block, Intensive or Weekly format.

Block format

These courses have 24 hours of structured class time, which are broken up into three separate days of six hours each. There are also six hours of structured class work, which may be delivered face-to-face or online.

Intensive format

These courses have a minimum of 24 hours' class time. They are delivered over four consecutive days, or two blocks of two consecutive days with about six weeks in between. Attendance is required on all course days.

Weekly format

Weekly courses take place during the standard university trimester periods. These courses are held weekly in the evening.

You can check the course schedules in the School of Government Postgraduate Prospectus. Whatever format your course is delivered in, you need to attend all of the classes to pass and to get the most out of your study.

Study while you work

The block format of the classes means you can fit your study commitments around your work and home life. If you're struggling at any time, just let us know—we want your study to be a success.

Workload

If you are studying fulltime you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester will need to do around 20–25 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours work.

Duration

You can usually complete the Master of Public Management in three or four trimesters over two years, when studying full time. If you're studying part time, the MPM can usually be completed in six trimesters over three years.

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a conversion programme designed for graduates outside the ICT sector who want to become business analysts. Read more

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a conversion programme designed for graduates outside the ICT sector who want to become business analysts.

The Master of Professional Business Analysis (MBusAn) degree has been developed as a component of the Wellington ICT Graduate School created by Victoria University and its partners. The programme is closely linked with industry requirements and courses are offered with industry collaboration.

Degree structure

The Master of Professional Business Analysis (MBusAn) consists of 10 taught courses plus a project taken full-time over 12 months, starting in July (Trimester 2) of each year.

Courses in the first part of the programme are organised around seminars where students learn about the latest theoretical advances, and apply these to a case which mirrors the challenges and complexities of a real-world business.

In the second part of the programme, courses are organised as clinics and students work directly with industry partners in a workshop setting, examining real business problems, and the final project requires significant time working with an industry partner, under the supervision of an academic.

Course descriptions

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a 180-point degree consisting of ten 15-point courses and a 30-point project, as follows:

Part 1 Core business analysis courses (total 90 points)

  • MBUA 510 Business and Systems Analysis
  • MBUA 511 Process Design
  • MBUA 512 Databases and Analytics
  • MBUA 513 Management of IT Projects for Business Analysts
  • MBUA 514 Enterprise Architecture
  • MBUA 515 Information Systems Innovation and Strategy

Part 2 Business environment (total 45 points)

  • MBUA 521 Global Business Environment
  • MBUA 522 Organisational Behaviour
  • MBUA 523 Accounting for Managers

Part 3 Project and consulting skills (total 45 points)

  • MBUA 531 Information Systems Consulting Practice
  • MBUA 532 Project (30 points)

Courses will be centred on practical problem-solving tasks, and typically will start with a problem described in a case or directly by an industry partner. The courses will enable students to apply the various concepts seen in the classroom to the industry problem during the trimester.

In addition, it is expected that the 30-point project, MBUA 532, will be used to build on the knowledge covered in the courses. Projects are seen as an "industry intensive period", enabling students to reflect on how the academic content can be applied to a complex situation.

Career opportunities

The MBusAn programme seeks to provide capabilities to students to meet the shortage of skills observed in the ICT sector.

In 2017, business analysts still topped the list of skills in demand 

646KB according to the latest Tech Employer Insight Report (Absolute IT, March 2017), with 79% of tech employers planning to hire in the coming year and more than half planning pay increases for existing staff.

Past students have explored projects that include methane inhibitors in cattle, power pole maintenance, training provision in developing countries, new beverages and environmentally sustainable toothbrushes.

Earn your Master's while you spend a year working on your project. Work with the support of mentors, industry experts, structured classes and an Advisory Board made up of fellow students.

You can work on a project as part of your current job, or you can develop your own idea, or work on a project alongside a commercial or research-based organisation. Victoria has relationships with a range of organisations and will help you make the match.

Valuable skills

After completing a Master of Innovation and Commercialisation, you'll be able to:

  • identify opportunities and assess the feasibility of new products and markets
  • understand the research, design and manufacturing and commercialisation processes
  • understand intellectual property, regulatory requirements and funding options
  • work effectively in a multidisciplinary team
  • work effectively with commercial and research organisations
  • prepare a business case for a product.

What you'll study

You’ll complete three courses and the 120-point commercialisation project. You’ll first take an introductory course in developing and commercialising innovation-based projects, and you must achieve at least a B+ in this to continue the programme.

Next you’ll complete two courses that explore strategy and product validation, and product development and commercialisation. As you work through these courses you’ll begin researching your own project—a product feasibility study and development plan.

All courses are compulsory and each involves a combination of workshops, lectures, guest speakers and team work.

Duration and workload

The MInnComl will take you 12 months to complete over three trimesters—from March to February. You can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for most of the year.

You can potentially complete the programme part time. Talk to the programme director about how this can be done.
