People, Organisations & Change

Institution Logo Erasmus University Rotterdam

This collaborative and international master programme teaches you how to think creatively about practical solutions to changing demands as an HR practitioner or management consultant.

People are at the centre of organisations. But how people do create value for organisations and what can organisations offer to the people who work in them? More fundamentally, how do we manage people, organisations and change successfully in a turbulent world?

Our respected international faculty members will bring you the latest thinking and empirical research in the field, drawing on theoretical perspectives to connect micro (people and groups), meso (organisations) and macro (external conditions) concerns.

You’ll learn to think critically to make better people-related and data-driven decisions, and to create positive change for individuals and organisations. You will apply research insights to practical problems from the start of your studies as part of a consultancy project, and the small group environment means that you can easily interact with students, teachers, practitioners and companies to enhance your learning. You’ll graduate with an in-depth understanding of how to manage people, organisations and change as a manager, consultant or HR professional.
