Course details


If you want to kick-start a professional management career, our 12-month Master of Management degree provides an ideal springboard to achieve your goals. Designed for people who already have a bachelor’s degree in any field of study, the Master of Management is a taught professional qualification (180 points at 500 Level) offering specialisations in two fields.


  • Marketing
  • Supply Chain Management

This one-year course is ideal for recent university graduates, or anyone in the early to mid stages of their career who wants to become either a marketing manager or a supply chain/logistics manager.

It will develop your ability to succeed in complex, competitive and culturally diverse business situations, both in New Zealand and other countries.

The course is taught through a combination of lectures, group work, case studies, tutorials and discussions.

Masters graduates are highly sought after by employers, offering you a significant advantage in terms of job prospects, salary potential and rapid career advancement.

Course content

Part One is comprised of four core management papers that provide a broader global business context for your learning, so you can confidently handle a wide range of management issues. Students will also gain an understanding of how to create and run businesses that are both profitable and sustainable; good for social and environmental wellbeing, as well as the bottom line.

In Part Two, you will choose four papers focused on building knowledge in your specialist subject; either Marketing or Supply Chain Management, with the introduction of more advanced ideas.

  • Marketing graduates will be strategically minded, creative and analytical, with strong written and visual communication skills, and the ability to apply their marketing expertise in the digital era.
  • Supply Chain Management graduates will be adept at solving complex business problems, with the skills and techniques to design, develop and manage domestic or global supply chains.

Part Three provides opportunities to apply your skills through a High Impact Applied Project, which is designed to pull all your learning together and prepare you for employment.

Further study options at Waikato

Please be aware that graduates of the Master of Management are not eligible for admission to a PhD programme unless they choose to complete some additional research-focused papers at postgraduate level.

If you are interested in doing PhD study later on, then you may prefer to enrol for the Master of Management Studies instead.

Entry criteria

  • A bachelor’s degree in any subject/field, with at least a B-minus grade average across the 300-level papers; or
  • You meet the criteria for entry based on your previous work experience or evidence of academic study. This is considered on a case-by-case basis

Please note this qualification is not suitable for those who have already majored in either Marketing or Supply Chain Management as part of their bachelor’s degree, graduate diploma, or a postgraduate diploma. If this applies to you, then we encourage you to look at the Master of Management Studies (MMS) instead.

You also need to meet an English language entry requirement as follows: IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 overall (no band less than 6.0); iBT (internet based) TOEFL - 90 with a score of 21 in writing; Pearson PTE Academic - Overall score of 58 and no PTE communicative skills score below 50; Waikato Pathways - successful completion of Level 8 with a B grade average in the Certificate of Attainment in English Language (CAEL) programme.

Note: To provide flexibility to students during COVID-19 who are affected by the closure of testing centres, and who wish to start their studies in 2021, the University of Waikato will accept the following alternative tests until further notice:

  • IELTS Indicator (this is an online version of the regular IELTS test)
  • TOEFL iBT Home (Plus) (this is an online version of the regular TOEFL test)
  • Duolingo English Test (DET) score of 110 for postgraduate programmes.

The University of Waikato will also accept IELTS and iBT TOEFL test results completed in the last 3 years, rather than the usual 2 years until further notice.
