Organisations are increasingly affected by constant change and the ability to adapt and stay relevant is the key determinant of their very existence. This has created a need for a genre of professionals who are able to enable organisations to better respond and adapt to industry/market changes and technological advances by deeply impacting both organisational factors and human factors.
In response to this need from the industry, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has launched the Executive Post Graduate diploma in Organisation Development and Change Programme (EPGDODC) in 2015 at the Mumbai campus. Soon, increased demand saw the programme being delivered out of Delhi and Bangalore centres also in 2016. The programme focused both on developing the knowledge and skills needed for professionals who are dealing with Organisation Development and Change Management activities. However, it was felt that a much deeper understanding of both knowledge and practice of various business functions is also required to enable leaders to make sustainable change and create both competitive and collaborative advantage.
The MA in Organisation Development, Change and Leadership programme endeavours to address this gap by enabling the development of a new generation of leaders who are able to ride this wave of change with panache and lead organisations. The programme will transform the students both personally and professionally. Students will gain a deeper understanding about themselves and a thorough knowledge of organisational strategy, operational excellence and the interplay of systems and people processes. This is in addition to creating an in-depth understanding of functional knowledge across management disciplines.
The learning methodology is heavily tilted in favour of experiential learning through intensive “Field Immersions" across organisations. Students will have hands on exposure to different business functions during the field immersion in varied industries. Renowned national and international academicians, in addition to reputed practitioners from the industry would facilitate class room sessions. The programme adopts a customised approach to student development and provides individual coaches to students. There will be opportunities for students to work across virtual teams in collaboration with top universities across the globe to enhance their cross cultural competence.
Over two years, this program blends multi-disciplinary formal and collaborative learning with human interaction labs, research dissertation and situated learning experiences in social sector organisations and small medium enterprises.
The MA in Organisation Development, Change and Leadership programme focusses on nurturing next generation global leaders who can understand the new world as a system of interacting components that impact each other in significant but often underutilized ways; opening doors for more holistic, effective and innovative leadership for businesses and Societies. For those passionate about growing their careers and making a difference, Masters in Organization Development, Change and Leadership is the program to reckon with.
