The Master of Management is designed for students wanting to advance their scholarly research and master their strategic management capabilities. On completion you will be prepared to take on a leadership position in a relevant management context.

You explore the different aspects that make up a leadership role, including communications, finance, strategic planning, human resources, governance and marketing – taught by a team of highly respected and internationally qualified tutors.

By mixing advanced theoretical study with highly applied, work-based learning, you engage in rigorous intellectual analysis and learn to apply new skills and techniques to existing or emerging issues in the workplace.

Your advanced level of work-integrated practice and knowledge will contribute to high-level management and performance improvement, particularly (but not exclusively) in the areas of business, health, hospitality, or information technology.

TOPICS YOU'LL COVER: Management Practice - Research Methodology (30 credits), Thesis (90 credits))

FURTHER STUDY OPTIONS: Courses Currently Under Development at Toi Ohomai, or Offered at Other Institutions. If you have completed the 90 credit Thesis, you'll be able to progress to PhD study at Level 10.
