M.Ed. in Education and Human Resource Studies About the Organizational Learning, Performance and Change Specialization

The Organizational Learning, Performance and Change master’s specialization is designed to equip you to make a strong impact on your organization’s people and processes. You’ll be able to apply your new skills to individuals, teams, systems, and processes at your organization – or, as a consultant to many organizations seeking strategic improvements to their company.

This program includes an application component – critical to moving you from knowledge to action, and preparing you for real-world human capital and organizational performance issues. You’ll have access to organizations to experiment with the tools and techniques you learn in class, seeing results first-hand and learning to adjust your thinking to meet challenges.
