Program Description:

Organizational Dynamics is a professional graduate degree program within the University of Pennsylvania's School of Arts and Sciences. Penn pioneered professional education in America and continues to set the pace today with 25 outstanding professional Master’s Degree programs. Designed for mid-career or advanced professionals, the education offered by Organizational Dynamics enables and supports development of the important blend of creative and innovative thinking with practical and strategic tools. Organizational Dynamics is ideal for those who do not desire or need the foundation curriculum required in a standard business degree, or for those who previously earned an MBA or another professional or graduate degree. Indeed, many find that the Master of Science in Organizational Dynamics (MSOD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Organizational Dynamics degrees are optimal complements to other advanced degrees such as management, medical and health sciences, education, law, and psychology. In every Organizational Dynamics course, students engage in meaningful dialogue and collaboration —delving into the specific challenges and opportunities they and their organizations face on a daily basis. They also tap into each other’s cross-industry insights to reframe and solve problems within their own organizations. Organizational Dynamics students gain the knowledge, skills and perspective required to effectively lead and manage in an environment of complexity and change. Those who invest in an MSOD or MPhil find that it pays tremendous dividends—both for the individual students and for the organizations in which they apply what they have learned.
