Today's leaders find they must continually realign their organizations to evolving strategic visions, missions, and goals critical to short-term performance. Simultaneously, they are faced with the complex task of adapting their organizations to rapidly changing competition for markets and resources, diverse workforce needs, government regulations, new technology, and a deteriorating environment.Organizational change involves a multidisciplinary perspective and uses concepts and methods from such fields as organizational development, management, sociology, anthropology, communication, information systems, psychology, and comparative economics.
Hawai'i Pacific University's Master of Arts in Organizational Change (MA/OC) emphasizes the management, design, implementation, and application of such change methods as continuous improvement and performance management. Students learn how to design innovations for organizational culture change, as well as how to implement an actual program of change in an organization. The MA/OC Program at HPU may be completed from any location in the world and requires a minimum of 42 semester credits of graduate work. The 42 semester hours are divided into 36 semester hours of core courses and 6 semester hours of capstone courses.
