About

Massey University’s Master of Analytics will equip you with technical ability and competence in devising data-driven solutions. These are the skills needed to transform massive amounts of data into insights that enable better decision making and innovation both in the private and public sectors.

Overview

Businesses and organisations today collect unprecedented amounts of detailed data. They can use this to become more competitive through greater efficiencies and new product creation. But in practice the sheer volume of information is often overwhelming.

The Master of Analytics at Massey University 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. Your study will cover fundamental data analysis tools, including machine learning, data mining, statistics, and econometrics.

In the last phase of study, you will complete an applied analytics project, where you will address a real-world problem in collaboration with an organisation. We also give you training in communicating your findings in a compelling way to a business audience.

Gain globally recognised certification

The Master of Analytics is sponsored by the world's leading business analytics software provider - SAS. That means you get the globally recognised SAS certification when you graduate. Lecturers can use SAS business insights and you will gain access to SAS’ global network of clients. This agreement was the first of its kind with a New Zealand university.

Latest theory, technology and practical learning

Your course of study in the Master of Analytics will cover the fundamental theoretical concepts in analytics as well as the latest and cutting-edge technologies in the industry such as Python and R, together with SQL.

You will then learn how these tools are applied in a specialisation of your choosing. In the last phase of study you will complete an applied analytics project, where the knowledge and skills you have learnt will be utilised to address a real-world problem in collaboration with an organisation.
