Our MSc in people and organisational development will transform your practice.

The complex, changing world of work expects a lot of leaders and consultants today. Do you have the confidence, capability and credibility to deliver?

Are you a leader experienced in developing organisations, or an experienced HR, OD or change practitioner? Do you want to deepen your theoretical knowledge of developing people and organisations in order to significantly increase your relevance and impact?

If you do, then our MSc in People and Organisational Development is for you.

In these times of complex constant change, practitioners, leaders and consultants are expected to demonstrate awareness, sophistication and boldness in their practice. But how are these capacities developed? At Roffey Park participants get the results they want by deciding what they learn and how. We put you – the learner – at the centre, supporting and challenging you to find your full authority and purpose as a practitioner, a leader and a learner. This is a radical approach to education and, after three decades, this MSc remains the only academic qualification of its kind in Europe. If you want to empower yourself to learn deeply and extend your initiative, confidence and credibility, look no further.

As well as facilitating deep learning, the programme’s approach creates close networks of highly experienced people who remain friends, advisors and even customers long after graduating.

UoS logo 150Validated by the University of Sussex, our MSc is a unique, two-year part-time qualification designed and delivered by highly experienced practitioners and leaders.  Using a self-managed learning philosophy, content and approach is determined by individual needs. Once orientated to the field of potential study, participants take charge of their own learning. They develop critical thinking skills and tap a range of resources including an extensive faculty and wider network of experts.  Participants also develop deep skill in giving and receiving high quality feedback and assessment so that they can learn in a highly social process. These are lifelong yet surprisingly rare skills that organisations, leaders and consultants require more than ever to succeed in handling and leading in constantly changing contexts.

With the initiative, creativity and confidence gained, our graduates move into influential, fulfilling and stretching roles inside and outside organisations in many sectors and in many parts of the world. Every year we see participants inspired in their learning to become more innovative, practical and relevant for the good of organisations and the people in them.
