In a world where managing and leading change has become critical, the Change Management Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) will set you apart from colleagues with standard management qualifications.

Developing you as an accredited practitioner, this course will build your personal capacity to:

  • understand the academic theory behind organisational change
  • confidently take on a change leadership role
  • integrate academic knowledge and practice skills to engage in authoritative change management
  • make sense of the opportunities presented by cultural change.

This course is designed to fit around your personal and professional commitments. It is taught in three teaching blocks and you can choose to spread the course over a few years or complete it quickly in less than one year. Courses start in September, January and April.

Each three-day block is assessed by a work-based project which will contribute to your employer's business. This project will ensure that you are using best practice in your work.

All of the classroom teaching is workshop-based which promotes group discussion and the sharing of experience.

Course structure

This course is delivered in three teaching blocks. Each block is taught over three consecutive days and is assessed by a work-based project.

Projects will not only ensure you are putting your skills to use, but are also designed to benefit your employer.

You will choose three of four available modules.

Classroom teaching is workshop-based to promote group discussion and the sharing of experience.

Syllabus

On the Change Management course, you will study the three modules that interest you the most.

Managing the Human Aspects of Change

Organisational cultures, which are a reflection of the attitudes, values and beliefs of members, can either aid or impede change. On this module, you will gain practical skills and tools both to analyse these cultures and influence cultural change. The module encourages engagement with the often neglected human aspects of managing change.

Political and Institutional Perspectives on Change Management

This module is recommended for managers aiming to interpret and make sense of change initiatives coming from higher levels within the organisation. It focuses on the potentially large and unpredictable effects that political and economic events may have 

The module presents multiple opportunities to explore complex cause and effect relationships systematically and creatively. It helps managers make appropriate judgements in the absence of complete data and to reach meaningful conclusions as to the likely impact of global changes on their organisation.

The Leadership of Change

This module is recommended for managers either involved in or anticipating leading change initiatives at all levels within organisations.

We now understand how successful change initiatives require a combination of effective leadership and effective management. The module will introduce you to leading change theories, models and concepts which inform these contemporary debates. It addresses how leaders communicate change, how they respond to and rethink resistance to change and how power and politics always informs leadership activities.

By the end of the module you will appreciate the challenges of leading change and the potential positive difference that the effective leadership of change can make.

Systems and Complexity Approaches to Change Management

This module is recommended for managers grappling with the unpredictable and repercussive effects of managing change under challenging circumstances.

Change initiatives are often couched in project methodology terms, yet controlled project outcomes may remain elusive. The module examines action, effect, feedback and impact on initial conditions from a systems perspective. This contributes to an understanding of how and why localised change management projects may often diverge from planned expectations. The module explores the explanatory capabilities of such academic approaches and their potential value to practitioners.

Careers and employability

On completion of this course you will have a sound understanding of change management, with knowledge and skills widely sought after by private, public and not-for-profit organisations.

Graduates of the course receive free membership to the Institute of Change Management.

Birmingham Business School has been delivering management education in Singapore since 1994, when its MBA programme was originally launched. The MSc Management (with Specialist Pathways) extends these activities in Singapore and is delivered in conjunction with our partners, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM).

We use fundamentally the same syllabus as taught on the Management MSc programme in the UK and the same team of Business School academic staff travels to Singapore in order to deliver all of the modules.

Course details

Business today is global and no company can be confident of surviving unless it appreciates this fact and understands its implications.

Multinational corporations are very short of managers from countries other than their domestic base, who have the understanding to operate comfortably in different countries.

Small and medium-sized firms with strong niche positions are also increasingly looking for talented and well-trained staff to help them undertake international expansion. In major emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, successful domestic firms are poised to become multinational through expanding overseas. They too welcome graduates with the appropriate knowledge about doing business internationally.

For non business graduates please also see our MSc International Business programme.

Pathways

  • MSc Management
  • MSc Management: Strategy
  • MSc Management: Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • MSc Management: Organisational Leadership and Change

Learning and teaching

The programme is structured into three components; six core foundation subjects (60 credits), one of four specialist pathways (60 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). The MSc Management programme is assessed by individual coursework, group coursework, and examinations.

Coursework can take the form of short essays, extended essays, reports and presentations, through which students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.

Taught modules contribute two thirds of the overall degree (120 credits). The final assessment is the 60 credit dissertation (10,000 – 12,000 words), where students conduct their own research aligned to their pathway under the guidance of a supervisor.

Employability

The Business School enjoys active and close links with industry and the financial community. Many of our programmes have input from organisations such as GE, Biersdorf and Accenture.

Your programme of study

A good MBA can really make you stand out for the top jobs in any type of business in fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area. You develop insights across the top discipline functions such as finance, strategy, economics and project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines within themselves which you rapidly acquire skills and knowledge to manage successfully. These are essential disciplines to many known high street brands, service industries, online businesses and high growth start ups which ensure that if you start a business using existing skills or a new team that you are likely to provide a high growth enterprise very quickly. Alternatively you may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real transformation to prevent threat to business existence which involves you in making changes very quickly at operational level using the range of disciplines you learn.

In this situation you can overcome the threats quickly to ensure long term viability whilst managing short term risks to business and you can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction.

Multinational companies are in need of professionals who are able to negotiate global business deals, understand complex organisational structures, work in cross-functional teams and lead team members from various countries and with different backgrounds.
