Summary

The contemporary organisation is characterised by complexity and change. Our unique MA in Management and Organisational Dynamics, offered jointly by the Essex Business School and the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, aims to equip you with powerful tools to support your development as a future leader, manager, organisational consultant, researcher or executive coach. Drawing upon both critical management theory and the developing field of systems-psychodynamics, this innovative course will be of particular interest to anyone who wishes to understand the complex processes that impact on change in organisations. The integrated approach provides a deep analysis of the way organisations function, the nature of leadership and the way organisational structure and dynamics contribute to the operation of groups and systems. Learning is through taught and experiential elements, providing a platform for both further academic study and creative intervention in organisations. There are five taught modules, including an organisational observation and a residential group relations event. Those who are new to psychoanalytic approaches are required to attend a short pre-sessional course on Freud. The course is offered one year full-time, two years part-time or modular (up to five years). Teaching takes place on Wednesday during term-time in the first year and Tuesday in the second year for part-time students. Full-time students attend both days for one academic year.
