Organisations are affected by constant change and the ability to adapt, stay relevant, and thrive in uncertain times is the key determinant of their very existence. This has created a need for a genre of professionals who are able to create organizations with resilience, to enable organisations to better respond and adapt to industry/market changes and technological advances by deeply impacting both organizational factors and human factors. The M. A. – Organisation Development, Change and Leadership (ODCL) is a response to this need from the industry. This programme focuses on developing the knowledge and skills needed for professionals dealing people and organization issues, specifically with Organisation Development and Change.
The M.A. (ODCL) programme is developing a new generation of leaders who are able to ride this wave of change and lead organisations. The programme transforms students, both personally and professionally. Students gain a deeper understanding about themselves and a thorough knowledge of behavioural science, organizational strategy, operational excellence and the interplay of systems
and people processes. This is in addition to creating an in-depth understanding of functional knowledge across management disciplines.
The learning methodology is heavily tilted in favour of experiential learning through intensive “Field Immersions” across organisations. Students will have hands on exposure to different business functions during the field immersions in varied industries. Renowned national and international academicians — in addition to reputed practitioners from the industry
— will facilitate classroom sessions.
This MA (ODCL) programme blends multi-disciplinary formal and collaborative learning with human interaction labs, research dissertation and situated learning experiences in social sector organisations and small medium enterprises. It focuses on nurturing next generation global leaders who can understand the new world as a system of interacting components that impact each other in significant, but often underutilised ways; opening doors for a more holistic, effective and innovative leadership for businesses and societies. For those passionate about career growth and making a difference, an M.A. in Organisation Development, Change and Leadership is the programme to reckon with.
