To make a change requires good leadership. This programme will provide you with a better understanding of the various challenges facing the practising manager and consultant. It features a solid combination of both in-depth business knowledge and knowledge of human resources.
The programme draws inspiration from the internationally recognised research areas of the lecturers on the programme. These include the fields of knowledge management, identity in organisations, organisational culture, and leadership and change. In particular, the programme emphasises the strategic nature of the contemporary challenges associated with managing organisations and work. You will learn how to apply the theoretical concepts, models and tools to solve real problems as they may appear in organisations.
The course also aims at introducing, explaining and applying the methodological aspects of studying organisations, especially in terms of interventions aimed at bringing about organisational change.
We adopt a student-centred approach to teaching and learning. The aim is to increase your capacity for advanced problem solving, resulting in better decision-making abilities. Our courses are based on state-of-the-art research in each particular field, and we encourage students to improve their skills in terms of both critical thinking and practical application.
