In this MSc we examine the interaction between organisations and the people who lead and work within them. We explore how activity in organisational settings is influenced by institutional and societal factors, and the effect this ultimately has upon the organisation and wider society. For more information on the MSc programme, click here.
We have a mixed and international student cohort. We welcome both students continuing their education after previous studies, or those who have worked in an organisational setting for some time.

Our students go into a wide variety of roles and settings, for example in management consultancy, human capital, the civil service, charitable organisations, change management, organisational development, and academia.
