Masters degrees in Organisational Development offer advanced training in the techniques involved in developing and expanding an organisation’s workforce, physical recourses and organisational structure.
Courses are typically taught MS or MSc degrees, though research-based MRes programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Business Studies.
In an increasingly competitive and dynamic economy, the pressure is on for businesses to keep up with modern developments.
You will explore the cultures through which organisations operate, namely analysing their values and behaviours, and how these may change depending on their economic environment. Analysis will often cover topics such as international development and globalisation, as well as commercialisation and privatisation of organisations in various industries.
Training is also provided in strategic management techniques, allowing you to develop skills in leading, consulting and managing a workforce to cope with changes in organisational structure.
Careers options are highly varied in this field, but typical routes include executive positions in Operations Management, Human Resources Management (HR), and Public Relations (PR). Other routes could include public administration, consultancy or market research.
