Overview

Master of Management (Human Resource Management)

Become more than a practitioner

Gain the human resource management knowledge and strategic skills to help elevate your career and maximise the potential of people within your organisation.

Massey University’s Master of Management (Human Resource Management) gives you an international perspective on human resource management. You will learn how to become a human resources expert with an in-depth knowledge of the theory of HR. 

You'll also learn the strategic skills to apply that knowledge to different types of industries and organisations.

This degree is most useful if you come from a discipline outside of HRM and have found yourself working at a level where you need human resource management skills. Or if you have an undergraduate human resources qualification and want to gain more in-depth knowledge.

The university teaches you how to be a practitioner and a strategist. You'll learn how to take the best of the theory to solve issues in varying workplace situations, including an industry case study.

You will be able to take advantage of Massey University staff research expertise in human resources and related areas.

The university also has close connections with the main industry body in New Zealand – the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand (HRINZ) and work within their competency framework.

Now available to complete in a shorter time (one year)

There is the ability in this specialisation (endorsement) to complete your study in just one calendar year instead of 18 months. This is available if you study the Master of Management at the Manawatū campus and complete your final course (Part Two) over Summer School.

Rigorous study

The Master of Management is a rigorous programme, where you will be expected to achieve at a high level. The quality of the university graduates reflects this, and contributes to the reputation of the qualification.
