Course Summary

Our unique MA in Management and Organisational Dynamics, offered jointly by the Essex Business School and the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, aims to equip you with powerful tools to support your development as a future leader, manager, organisational consultant, researcher or executive coach. The contemporary organisation is characterised by complexity and change. Drawing upon both critical management theory and the developing field of systems-psychodynamics, this innovative course will be of particular interest to anyone who wishes to understand the complex processes that impact on change in organisations.

The integrated approach provides a deep analysis of the way organisations function, the nature of leadership and the way organisational structure and dynamics contribute to the operation of groups and systems. Our graduates go on to a number of different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use study with us to deepen their understanding of their work.

Modules

This module provides an opportunity for students to explore, reflect and learn about the limits and opportunities in applying psychoanalytic concepts to the study of organisations. You will explore the points of convergence and divergence, between critical management theory and systems-psychodynamic approaches to organisations. You will develop the means to compare and debate issues relevant in both psychoanalytic and management discourses; will consider and evaluate the relevance and the limits of psychoanalytic thinking for understanding organisations; and will discern and explore what is unique to a psychoanalytic, an academic and a professional understanding of organisations.
