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.

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.

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.

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.

It is important to note that the MAnalyt programme is specifically designed to be started in Semester 1 with the core pillars of statistics, data mining and econometrics. The specialist subject courses in Semester 2 allow students to apply the skills learnt in Semester 1 and extend these into their business area of interest. Finally students will integrate all skills in the applied project in Summer School.

Part One (including 60 credits of compulsory courses and 60 credits of subject courses) and Part Two (project) as defined by the Schedule to the Qualification;

And including:

  • Any compulsory courses listed in the Schedule for the Qualification
