About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Master of Digital Transformation is a Level 9 programme of 180 credits; 120 credits at level 8 and 60 credits at level 9, completed by a combination of coursework and a significant project. It enables students who have completed a Bachelor Degree or similar, primarily from the working adult career enhancer market, situated across all industries and sectors where digital disruption is in play (i.e. all industries and sectors in New Zealand/Aotearoa) to achieve a postgraduate level qualification that will equip the graduate with highly abstracted user-friendly digitization tools/technologies, processes and initiatives. Graduates from the Master's programme will be able to use highly specialised knowledge and skills in both strategic and leadership roles in all industries and sectors. Master of Digital Transformation students will be able to work independently, think critically, generate and evaluate complex ideas to enable them to initiate, plan and evaluate change within varied specialised creative contexts and to apply these ideas to a range of management functions. Students look at the future of work in the context of Digital Transformation from a managerial perspective and will be able to take on both strategic and leadership roles.
