Course content

Massey University’s Master of Management (International Business) is suitable for those who have found themselves in a role that requires international business expertise, or if you have have studied a different business subject in your undergraduate qualification and want to specialise in this growing area.

Our students come from a wide range of areas including business disciplines like marketing, economics, finance or supply chain, and other fields such as engineering, health, and information technology. They share a common desire to increase their understanding and expertise in international-business related skills and knowledge.

Understanding the context of global trade

The global economy has a major impact on our daily lives. The products we use, the financial transactions we undertake, our jobs, are all subject to international business decisions. Understanding these impacts allows us to work more effectively in society and in business.

You will gain an understanding of New Zealand’s trading relationships, clarify the complexities of trade and politics and the drivers of globalisation. You will learn the theory of trade and its benefits, but also the impact of different cultural values, foreign exchange, politics, legal frameworks and economic systems and how these factors/risks impact trade decisions. You will then learn strategies for analysing countries and their risk factors.

Real-world learning

There is a strong focus on applied learning. Teaching will continually focus on current affairs to illustrate course concepts and ideas. A 60-credit project in your second year examines a real-life case study.

Learn from leading business experts

Massey’s Master of Management is an internationally-recognised qualification. The Massey Business School is one of the country’s leading and largest business schools - it is ranked among the top two per cent of business schools globally and is AACSB accredited.

Massey University’s business and management studies rank in the top 200 in the world (by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds). We are also ranked in the top 150 universities worldwide for business administration programmes by the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects.

Take less of your time

The Master of Management can be completed in 1.5 years of full-time study. If you study part-time the qualification takes between 2.5 and five years.

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 this programme demands more in-depth and independent study.

If you wish to progress to a PhD upon completion, you should enrol in a Master of Business.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge and expertise.


This qualification will open the doors to a huge range of positions as an international business specialist within almost any industry. If you are already currently working this qualification will help you understand the international context of your organisation and progress up the career hierarchy.

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.
