This qualification will help you become an outstanding leader by providing you with the knowledge and tools to be able to make positive change in your organisation and the world around you. You will learn not only how to lead, but how to release that potential in others.

Relevant learning

Massey University’s Master of Advanced Leadership Practice is a unique qualification in New Zealand. You will gain from Massey’s research-led approach, focusing on the latest findings in the fields of positive psychology and strengths-based leader development. Using internationally-tested and proven methods this programme has a strong focus on relevant, applied learning. We work hard to ensure your learning is relevant to your current situation, and career ambitions.

You are encouraged to bring challenges and current limitations from your workplace to the programme, ready for exploration and breakthrough solutions.

You will make the powerful shift from managing to leading, gaining a deep understanding of yourself, your performance and your impact on others. Learn how to motivate diverse teams and bring them with you. You can expect to emerge as an adept, authentic, self-aware and adaptable solution-seeker, who can think critically.

Who is it for?

The big question for organisations in all fields is: “Where are your leaders coming from?”. The answer is that many of those future leaders are already present in your staff.

You may be a mid-level or senior manager, or an employer who knows exceptional leaders are vital to an expanding and thriving organisation. 

The Master of Advanced Leadership Practice is specifically designed for those who are currently in full-time positions.

What will you learn?

This is an intensive programme where we will help you develop the wide range of in-depth skills you need to become not just a good, but an excellent leader. 

You will distinguish yourself not only by your communication, coaching, negotiation and influence skills. By your self-awareness and emotional and social intelligence, enabling you to ‘read’ and deal with a myriad of potential situations. You will learn how to negotiate difficult situations in governance, ethics and conflict resolution. To manage change and stress. To be entrepreneurial, strategic and inspirational. All the while maintaining a healthy work-life balance and thinking about your and the organisation’s future.

How will you learn?

Experiential workshops are an integral part of MALP learning. They cover all aspects of being an effective leader, from established and emerging leadership concepts to self-awareness, advanced negotiation and influence, talent and diversity management, sustainability, mentoring, succession and future thinking. 

Some will be centred around the engineering of peak performance, some include elements of sports and performing arts psychology, while others will focus on authenticity, power and politics. These focus on transforming any old inefficient behaviours into new more effective direction. 

Ongoing assessments over the course of the programme include monthly reports and conducting a larger Social Enterprise Project.

The workshops run from 8.30am - 5.00pm on a Friday and Saturday. They are held once a month (mid-month) on the Massey University Auckland campus or at a residential Auckland location over the course of 9 months. 

In the first year two of your courses are run concurrently. Upon successfully completing these you will undertake a research course focusing on leadership in your organisation.

Be inspired

The Master of Advanced Leadership Practice is led by international specialists in their fields.

You will learn from inspirational leaders, creative practitioners and Massey University’s own acclaimed staff. Guest speakers will bring confidential insights and wisdom about the challenges they have faced. You will gain from an intensive and outcome-focused experience.

Join this unique qualification to become a leading, sought-after analyst, able to understand and communicate big data in social policy-related contexts.

Find out more about the Master of Analytics parent structure.

The Master of Analytics with a major in public policy is for public servants who want to be able to better understand, interpret and analyse large data sets. 

The degree equips you with the technical ability and critical thinking needed to transform complex data into information that can be used as evidence for making policy.

Massey University is the only New Zealand university that offers the Master of Analytics (Public Policy).

What will you learn?

The MAnalyt teaches fundamental data analysis tools, including data mining, statistics and econometrics in the core courses. You will then learn how these tools are applied in the public sector.

The Master of Analytics (Public Policy) teaches a critical appreciation of the complexity of data analytics including an examination of cross-cultural data analysis; methodology; ethics; systems mapping; attribution and data management.

It also introduces case studies examining the roles and possibilities of geospatial data and the use of outputs from the integrated data infrastructure (IDI). The IDI is the New Zealand cross-agency data set used by government agencies and policy makers.

Real-world learning

At Massey University we ensure your learning is firmly based in a real-world context. To help you identify the most appropriate technique and data to address a problem, you need to understand the real challenges and context that policy makers 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. 

You will work in conjunction with an external agency on a real-world problem using the skills and knowledge you have already gained.

Based in Wellington

Block courses are held in Wellington.

Complete in a year

The qualification can be completed in 12 months of full-time study, or over a longer period of part-time study. The programme starts in semester one of each calendar year.

You need to complete three core statistics and analytics courses and three public policy specialisation courses. The programme ends with the applied or capstone project.

In demand by employers

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

In 2011, Statistics New Zealand launched the IDI. It combines information from a range of organisations to provide the insights government needs to improve social and economic outcomes for New Zealanders. There are very few people skilled at using the IDI.
