“The programme presented a great opportunity to formalise my experience in organisational change and development. I was attracted by the strength of its academic foundations coupled with its relevance to industry practice. The quality of lectures was superb and the wide mix of experience and backgrounds of the students enabled a significant amount of class discussion which greatly added to the course. Overall it was a very rewarding experience which I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in any aspect of people at work.”  Colette Real, Organisational Change Manager, Bank of Ireland
