Curriculum at a Glance

Executives enrolled in the program will be exposed to a change leadership curriculum that is both grounded in traditional psychological and business principles but also focused on working with and managing change in organizational environments of the future.

Course content and learning objectives reflect professionally documented competencies essential for successful change leaders and are sequenced to emphasize the multi-level, complex nature of change in today’s organizations. Executives will learn about change-related topics at the societal, organizational, group and individual levels and will be asked to integrate their own learning and professional development through action research projects, cultural immersion events and participation in discussion-based reflective practice courses.

The curriculum for the Executive Masters Program is comprised of three components. Executives will enroll in 12 “core” content areas that reflect today’s best thinking regarding the fundamental knowledge, skills and abilities required for leading organization change. These content areas are sequenced across four Learning Modules, each of which focuses on a different aspect or level of change in organizations (e.g., system, group, individual).

In addition to the core content, two “integrative” practica have also been developed to assist the translation and application of core concepts to the actual work environment, namely through action research and individual and group reflection. These integrative practica span the length of the entire program and will have several components that occur in the liminal spaces between modules.

A final practicum is comprised of attendance at and participation in various cultural learning events and spans the length of the program as well. These events are designed to reinforce the program's core content by exposing executives to arts, creativity and emotion-based learning experiences.

All integrative and cultural practica are part of the formal curriculum and will be taken for credit.
