Master of Management (MMgmt)

This masterate is intended for graduates with a degree other than business. Candidates will normally have completed the PGDipBusAdmin in the same major. The prerequisite qualification and the MMgt form a coherent programme of at least 240 credits.

You may study this major fulltime at Manawatu, Wellington and by Distance Learning (extramurally).

Major in Communication Management (Comm Mgmt)

This programme consists of 90 credits of approved 700-level Communication, Journalism and Marketing papers (219 prefix) including 219.790 Research Methods in Communication (unless you have already completed this paper), and not less than 30 credits of reported research, plus electives to make a total of 120 credits.

You choose one of four options:

  1. A MMgt thesis of 120 credits (assuming you have already completed 219.790 Research Methods in Communication). This is your least-cost option as full theses receive more government financial support
  2. A MMgt thesis of 90 (219.792 and 219.799) credits along with 219.790 Research Methods in Communication
  3. A 60-credit research (219.792) report plus 60 credits of postgraduate study (usually two PG papers one of which must be from Communication)
  4. A 30-credit research report (219.799) plus 90 credits of postgraduate study (usually three PG papers two of which must be from Communication).

Your personal course of study must be approved by the Academic Board. Please consult with the Head of the Department of Communication, Journalism and Marketing as early as possible.
