Vision and strategy

As New Zealand’s defining tertiary education institution, Massey University has provided underpinning knowledge for our nation’s successful development in much of the 20th century. In the 21st century we aspire once again to serve and lead as the “engine” of this new New Zealand. Today Massey has a well-established reputation for its outstanding teaching and research grounded in real-world issues. We are New Zealand’s national university, with three campuses and a distance education programme that currently teaches 34,000 students from more than 100 countries. We have an excellent record of engagement with all our communities, and we are proud to support educational opportunity in New Zealand and around the world.

Our agenda

Massey University has placed research at the forefront of its agenda for 2025, making it one of the seven big goals through which Massey aims to achieve major advances in building reputations and increasing revenue generation in the context of being the defining national university with a ranked international pedigree.
