About

The Master of Digital Business (MDigiBus) from the University of Waikato is unique in New Zealand, as it focuses on using technology from a management perspective.

Overview

In a society that's obsessed with all things smart and mobile, organisations that fail to keep pace with the latest digital technologies will become increasingly irrelevant.

If you're keen to pursue a career as a tech-savvy manager, this highly practical masters degree in Digital Business offered by the University of Waikato will show you how to harness the power of digital technologies to revolutionise an organisation's business operations  - to boost profits, optimise performance, and engage in new ways with customers or suppliers.

Our students complete a professional industry internship where you'll work on real projects at an organisation of your choice for 8-13 weeks, either in New Zealand or overseas. The internship is designed to kick-start your career by giving you hands-on experience that is sought after by employers, and will help solidify your knowledge base.

You'll also complete an applied research project investigating a problem or opportunity related to digital business at a real organisation.

By the time you graduate, you'll be ready to lead digital transformation projects and strategies on behalf of organisations - as a manager or consultant.

In this degree, you'll explore exciting topics such as: cloud computing, big data, mobile computing, beacon technology, gamification, business intelligence, real-time analytics, global marketing and social media, IT consumerisation, location-based services, supply chain integration, automated logistics, e-government business services, search technology, and virtual team communication.
