Organizational Change

As organizations worldwide face the need to respond to ever more diverse and challenging issues, managers and executives must develop new ways of working with complex and uncertain situations in the pursuit of purposes and outcomes that are actionable, ethical and resilient.

Ashridge has been offering Organizational Change programs for over 20 years. Grounded in our cutting-edge research, our Masters and Doctorate programs have been developed by experienced change practitioners to meet the needs of modern change experts, challenging the way we think about strategy, innovation, and change.

Masters in Leading Change

This program is created by experienced change experts for change agents, consultants, entrepreneurs, strategists and innovators facing volatile disruption, and looking to acquire new skills to lead change. This Masters will change your mindset on global systems and trends, and equip you with tools to intervene in complex, interconnected systems, lead change and innovation initiatives in the workplace, and effectively engage stakeholders.

Doctorate in Organizational Change

In a world where the demand for managerial qualifications is well served, this innovative program of advanced study and inquiry meets the growing need for a reputable advanced qualification in the practice of organizational change, intervention, and leadership. It is aimed at those who wish to work beyond the confines of conventional leadership as they develop radical new ways of contributing to the wider environment in which our organizations operate. 

Coaching and Supervision

Our faculty is made up of experienced organizational development consultants, accredited executive coaches, and qualified psychotherapists.

Designed for those who wish to add greater value as consultants, lead their organization through change, or become more insightful executive coaches, our coaching qualifications offer an integrated perspective on the coaching profession and provide participants with invaluable insights and practical solutions. We conduct pioneering research, focusing on issues that affect leaders and organizations today. By grounding our research in everyday practice, we ensure that our curriculum is always relevant to the prevailing business climate.

Masters in Executive Coaching 

This two-year Masters degree is a pathway to becoming a fully accredited executive coach. It focuses on helping participants to integrate theory, research and skills from existing coaching practice, organization development, and psychotherapy. The program intends to develop reflective practitioners who are able to critique their own work and continuously develop as coaching professionals.

For Module 1 of the Masters, participants can choose one of two options: Coaching for Organization Consultants or Team Coaching for Consultants. Both modules are Open Programs and can be counted towards the Masters for those who wish to continue their studies.

Postgraduate Diploma in Organizational Supervision

As with all of our coaching and change programs, this program takes a broadly humanistic relational perspective. It develops theoretical knowledge of the psychological underpinnings of supervision as well as a critical evaluation of supervision models and theories. The program is a natural follow-on from the Masters in Executive Coaching and the Masters in Leading Change. 

This program equips coaches with the skills, credibility, and confidence to build their status as a senior practitioner and supervisor of coaches and consultants.
