How You See It Will Set You Apart

Developed specifically for experienced working professionals from a diverse range of industries, sectors and geographic locations, the year-long, intensive Executive Masters Program in Change Leadership is designed to help individuals and organizations increase their capacity for initiating, managing and sustaining workplace change efforts in increasingly complex and global environments.

Focusing on the application of both psychological and business principles to relevant real-world organizational challenges, the program emphasizes individual, team and organizational learning and transformation through rigorous training in and experience with applied research, reflective practice and the use of theoretical models.

Executives enter the program each summer in small cohorts of 16-24 students and are trained by faculty experts in organization change and consultation using a range of innovative adult learning technologies and various cultural immersion and residential experiences in and around the New York City metropolitan area.

The program is delivered in four 1-week modules extending over one year and includes pre-work, post-work and guided independent study/action research as part of the formal program requirements. 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 various opportunities for practice and reflection.

The program culminates in a 45-credit Masters of Arts Degree in Organizational Psychology, with a specialization in Change Leadership.

Mid-career professionals and aspiring organizational leaders who wish to lead and manage future change efforts are especially encouraged to apply.
