A specialised MSc that examines the impact of change management strategies in an organisational setting.
What does an organisation want to achieve? How does it go about achieving it? These are the fundamental questions at the heart of strategic planning. This MSc will help you answer them.
In a world of rapid change, organisations that can identify the need for change, design the changes needed and implement these more effectively and efficiently than others are more likely to survive and prosper. Designed for senior managers holding substantive positions in organisations - this programme will help you develop a strategic understanding beyond your functional speciality.
You’ll study four key elements: strategic planning; making strategies work; project management and strategic risk management. Ideally suited to those already engaged in issues of organisational structure, the MSc will deepen your understanding of the pressures faced by management and the organisation as a whole.
There are two tuition intakes per year for all courses:
- January - May
