Course description

Economic crisis, structural adjustment, competition, technical innovation, public, private and NGO sector reforms and many other drivers all require organisations in developing and transitional economies to change and develop on an ongoing basis. As a result, there is a growing need for staff who both understand and can contribute to organisational change and development initiatives and activities. This MSc aims to meet that need.
