International recognition

You will be joining communication and media-related programmes ranked as some of the best in the world.

Massey’s communication programmes are only the seventh outside of the US to be recognised by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC). This prestigious accreditation recognises Massey's "good connections with industry, its commitment to constant improvement, its strong leadership, and large research output". Massey Business School is ranked in the top 2% of business schools globally.

The communication programmes are also ranked in the top 200 out of 800 leading world universities by the international university ranking agency QS (Quacquarelli Symonds).
Accreditation means your degree is internationally recognised, making it easier to arrange a student exchange and find employment overseas.

Become a sought-after employee

You’ll emerge with skills that potential employers find very desirable. Communication management shows you how to communicate using "global English", making presentations to colleagues and clients using verbal and non-verbal approaches, and performing a communication audit.

Learn with leaders in the industry

Massey was the first to offer a university-level communication management programme in New Zealand, back in 1979. Our teachers are highly regarded internationally, blending expert international scholarship with real-world experience, giving you insights into the world of communication and consulting. You will obtain a comprehensive overview of communication management issues and processes.

At graduation you will be knowledgeable in management communication policies and practices, have a theoretical grasp of communication processes, and an awareness of how to apply communications and media technologies.


You may become a media relations or government relations specialist, or you could get a role as a communication advisor, helping an organisation deliver great communication in everything they do.

Massey’s Bachelor of Communication (Communication Management) will ground you in strategic planning, media relations, employee relations, government relations, issues management, and other public relations and communication management methods. Your future roles could involve specialising in any of these areas.
