Course content

Massey’s Master of Analytics will equip you with both the technical ability and the competence in critical thinking needed to transform massive amounts of data into information that is useful for crucial organisation decisions.

The real world

At Massey we ensure that your learning is firmly based in a real-world business context. We believe that in order to help you identify the most appropriate technique and data to address a problem, you need to understand the real challenges and context which businesses face.

The Master of Analytics will help you understand all these things, as well as give you training in communicating your findings in a compelling way to a business audience.

Extracting the most useful data

Rapid advances in digital technology and the internet allow businesses to collect and store unprecedented amounts of detailed data on customers, competitors, clients and internal activities.

Organisations can use such data to gain an improved understanding of their clients and to tailor their offerings, thus becoming more competitive or improving service performance. However, in practice the sheer volume of information is often overwhelming.

Sought-after by employers

The skills you will learn in the Master of Analytics meet the growing demand for graduates capable of harvesting, processing, analysing and presenting data in ways that encourage informed and effective organisational decision making. You will learn how to extract useful information from big data, while maintaining data security and privacy.

This will open up to you the increasing numbers of roles for people who can combine business skills with data analysis and who have excellent communication skills.

Latest theory and relevant, practical learning

Your course of study in the Master of Analytics will cover fundamental data analysis tools, including data mining, statistics, and econometrics.

You will then learn how these tools are applied in a specialisation of your choosing. In the last phase of study you will complete an applied analytics project, where the knowledge and skills you have learnt will be utilised to address a real-world problem in collaboration with an organisation.

Complete in a year

This qualification is a 180-credit programme, so can be completed in 12 months of full-time study, or over a longer period of part-time study.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Analytics will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload 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.

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 especially in planning and undertaking research.
