As a Massey Master of Applied Statistics student you will learn the professional practice of statistics, and the quantitative skills to conduct robust statistical analyses that are effective in the real world.

A Ministry of Education report found that:
A master’s qualification is made up of two parts. The first part gives you good knowledge and skills that will help you with the research part of your qualification. You must pass Part One before you can progress to Part Two.
For progression to Part Two of the Master of Applied Statistics, a B+ Grade Average is needed for the first 90 credits undertaken for Part One.
Admission to the Master of Applied Statistics requires you to have a bachelor degree, with a major in Statistics, or close equivalent, with a minimum B average in the majoring 300 level courses.
