Course content

Organisations are increasingly looking to coaching - conducted by both dedicated coaches and line managers – to help executives work through challenging business issues.

To contribute effectively to the business agenda, a coach needs the ability to align coaching objectives to business objectives.

The Henley MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change is unique in its emphasis on the organisational context for coaching, and for the inclusion of a practitioner research project as an integral part of the programme.

Who is the programme for?

This course is designed for those who are using, and intend to develop further, a coaching approach either in a line management role or as a professional freelance executive coach. It is also intended for managers who may be seeking to build a business-focused coaching culture within their organisations.

Programme structure

This course is part-time and scheduled over 30 months with an additional 6 months for writing up assignments if required.
