Course summary

Course description

MSc Organisational Change and Development aims to develop graduates who are capable of contributing to organisational change, and development initiatives/activities, in developing and transitional economies.

It will equip you with the skills to contribute positively to organisationally-based initiatives through effective diagnosis, planning, management and implementation of organisational change and development interventions.

Drivers including economic crisis, structural adjustment, competition, and technical innovation require organisations in developing and transitional economies to change and develop on an ongoing basis. This course satisfies the growing need for staff that can make a difference in this area.

You will learn from highly experienced lecturing staff that have extensive international experience, and benefit from in-depth overseas fieldwork that involves private, public and not-for-profit organisations.

Aims

The aim of this course is to develop you into a more effective agent of organisational change and development, by providing you with new analytical capacities, skills and knowledge. By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • understand the academic and theoretical basis of organisational change and development;
  • develop realistic HR strategies that contribute to effective organisational change and development interventions;
  • contribute positively to organisationally-based initiatives through the effective diagnosis, planning, management and implementation of organisational change and development interventions;
  • engage in specific specialist processes of organisational change and development;
  • synthesise new and existing knowledge by undertaking academic or specialist organisational change and development research.

Teaching and learning

Please note that field visits may be scheduled at any point during the course, including during University vacations. You are expected to be available to attend.

Part-time students complete the course over 24 months. There are no evening or weekend course units available; you should, therefore, discuss course requirements with the Programme Director and seek approval from your employer. Timetabling information is usually available from late August. You can discuss course unit choices during induction week with the Programme Director.
