Executive Master in Consulting and Coaching for Change (Part Time)

Provided by Insead

Course introduction


The INSEAD Executive Master in Consulting and Coaching for Change is a degree programme unlike any other. Over 18 months and 8 modules of 3 to 4 days, it takes you deep into the basic drivers of human behaviour and the hidden dynamics of organisations.

Integrating business education with a range of psychological disciplines, the programme enables you to understand yourself and others at a fundamental level – and to use that knowledge to create more effective organisations.

Whether you are an HR professional, a coach, a consultant or an executive seeking new ways to make an impact on your organisation, this programme offers you not simply a prized degree from one of the world’s leading business schools but a life-changing intellectual and emotional experience.

"The programme provides a transformational educational journey, both personally and professionally, based on the exploration of the dynamics of individual and organisational learning and change."
Professor Roger Lehman, Programme Co-Director

"Changes bring on tension but also give you the feeling that you are alive." " There is something about the combination of cognitive content and the intensive group setting that creates tipping points in participants' lives and work."
Professor Manfred F.R. Kets de Vries, Scientific Programme Director – and Founder

"Our goal is to develop scholar-practitioners, with ‘night vision’ and a deeper understanding of what goes on below the surface in themselves and others, in order to be more effective in their roles."
Professor Erik Van de Loo, Programme Co-Director
