Study type Taught


Change is inevitable. Change within organisations, however, is often complex and influenced by external factors that play an important role in how change is planned, communicated and ultimately operationalised.

MSc Organisational Change Management is a specialist course, which will prepare you for a role in organisational management or consultancy. The course will introduce you to advanced research in change management and will allow you to approach organisational change management from both a commercial and a social perspective, in order to help you understand not only why change happens, but how to manage it.

This course is perfect if you have a first degree in business management, or in a related subject area, or have relevant work experience in organisational management. MSc Organisational Change Management will help you to enter or progress within the job market with a deeper understanding of management and organisational change.

You will graduate with an ability to excel in a management career and with the capacity to shape organisations and organisational life for the better.

Topics you will study include:

  • organisational behaviour and human resource management

  • understanding organisational change

  • change, creativity and innovation

  • leading change

  • ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR)

  • equality and diversity

MSc Organisational Change Management is taught at Essex Business School.. We don’t just think about business as being a collection of equipment, buildings and stock, instead we consider a business to be an interconnected group of people. People who have the power to influence, and be influenced by, the operations of that business. This approach to understanding the human aspects of why businesses operate in the way they do lends itself perfectly to a course focussed on how and why change happens within organisations.
