About this course

Massey'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.

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 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.
