About the Programme

You will explore new perspectives on change and challenge your own assumptions as a change agent.

Consulting and Coaching for Change is run jointly with HEC Paris and it draws on the combined strengths of two of the world's leading business schools.

The programme features seven 4.5-day modules, alternating between the two schools, and leads to a Specialised Master's Degree from HEC Paris.

You will learn how to:

  • Develop and deploy different intervention approaches
  • Handle new or difficult situations creatively and with confidence
  • Build your own self-awareness
  • Experiment with new ideas
  • Enhance your capacity for critical thinking and reflective practice

You will draw on relevant concepts from psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and other fields.

Throughout the programme, you will have access to a rich global network of participants, academics and industry pioneers to share ideas and experiences.
