Roffey Park hosts free event for its MSc in People and Organisational Development

Roffey Park is hosting a free event for its MSc in People and Organisational Development on 15th July 2005.

During the event, Rachel Saebi, Managing Director of organisational development consultancy Future Reach, and a recent graduate from the programme, will describe her experience as a participant and present her dissertation findings on the theme of work-life balance for leaders.

Roffey Park will also provide practical tips on how potential participants can develop a business case for obtaining financial support for the programme from their organisation.

"Roffey Park’s MSc gives you a systematic and holistic way of looking at things," said Saebi. "I wanted a process that would not only stretch me academically but would also help me to develop myself personally in terms of how I acted. Working with other practitioners in the same field gives a diversity of challenge and encouragement. Other programmes may help you understand the models but this one highlights the impact you have and how you relate to your clients or colleagues."

Programme Director Diane Moody said: "Our MSc covers the latest thinking in the field of organisational development and it gives participants the freedom to choose which areas they want to concentrate on," she said. "As well as learning about organisations and how to maximise the performance of people, they also learn a great deal about themselves and this helps them to become much more effective in their role."

Potential applicants for the MSc programme will have an opportunity, after the event, to take part in the programme assessment process which involves an interview and a group discussion exercise.

‘The MSc Open Event’ is a free session, although Roffey Park says places are limited so booking is essential. The event will run from 10.00am to 12.30pm, with a buffet lunch.
