Master

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. A master's degree prepares students to lead or manage. A master's degree also prepares a person for a range of pursuits through specialized study of a field.

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses ‒ that of the North and South Islands ‒ and numerous smaller islands. Overseas students need to have a student visa and a reasonable level of cash to spend in order to undertake a course of study at a New Zealand based educational institution. New Zealand educational institutions will inform the appropriate immigration authorities if a student ceases to attend their enrolled courses, who may then suspend or cancel that student's visa. Educational institutions often also exchange this enrollment and attendance data electronically with other government agencies responsible for providing student assistance.

Best Masters of Arts in New Zealand 2017/2018. MA in Arts Management Whitecliffe Arts Management graduates are fully equipped to manage a broad spectrum of arts enterprises. As well as an in-depth understanding of contemporary best business practice, our graduates understand those special needs of artists and their art forms. Artist, entrepreneur, intellectual, manager, educator, social worker, politician; an arts manager must wear many hats and so requires multiple skills.
