Course details


If you want to pivot into a new career as a business analyst, this degree equips you with a strong industry-focused skillset.

Want to solve complex business problems using technology, processes, and data? The Master of Professional Business Analysis (MBusAn) shows you how. Designed for people from any background, this programme equips you with a strong, industry-focused qualification.

Gain skills in business and systems analysis, databases and analytics, management, and Information Systems strategies, building on your existing talents and skills. Through hands-on experiences and real world projects, the MBusAn prepares you to launch your career as a business analyst.

Course delivery

You can complete the MBusAn programme either fully online or on campus in Wellington. There will be face-to-face activities for students in Wellington and equivalent online options for students outside of Wellington.

Courses are taught as weekly tutorials, pre-recorded video content, online lectures (which will be made available on-demand), and application-oriented activities. These activities will include workshops, individual exercises or readings, or team-based tasks that develop your understanding and mastery of a specific concept.


Studying full time, you can expect a workload of 40 to 45 hours a week for much of the year. Make sure you take this into account if you are balancing other commitments.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you’ll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10 to 12 hours work.
