The contemporary organisation is characterised by complexity and change. Our unique MA Management and Organisational Dynamics, offered jointly by Essex Business School and our Centre for 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, our 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.
On this course, 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.
This course is also offered as modular study.
