About Course

Waikato's Master of Digital Business is unique in New Zealand, as it focuses on using technology from a management perspective.

If you're keen to pursue a career as a tech-savvy manager, this highly practical degree will show you how to exploit the latest 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.

Students can attend classes at our campus in Hamilton, or choose to study online from anywhere in New Zealand - ideal for busy professionals who are working full-time and want to upgrade their skills.
