"There is an active Master's Community that organizes many activities where you can get to know fellow changers and create a bridge between theory and practice."

"After finishing my HBO Bachelor's in Human Resource Management and my pre-Master's, I started the Master's in Change Management. I learned a lot about business, but most importantly about how people behave in business and in related change projects and how you can get employees to support the change.
The course units are given in small groups and interaction is encouraged, also in larger lectures. The lecturers are enthusiastic and they encourage you to be critical of the lecture material...

Deciding not to take the beaten track

After my BSc I wanted to investigate another subject area and opted for Change Management. The programme deals with developments in Change Management, the things that influence it, and project management.

"This academic year I'm combining the MSc in Change Management with an administrative internship at UniPartners Groningen, an organisation affiliated to the University that tries to bridge the gap between higher education and industry by involving students in consultancy projects in companies...
A lot is expected of you, and the lecturers are critical of everything. After my BSc in International Business & Management I decided not to take the beaten track. I wanted to investigate another subject area and opted for Change Management. The backbone of the MSc programme for me is the Field Course, which deals with developments in Change Management, the things that influence it, and project management. Your level of thinking goes up by leaps and bounds because you have to take a critical approach to the subject matter. I hope to graduate in six months' time. I'm not sure what I shall do then. I want to have a good think about it in the summer: whether to continue my studies somewhere else or to start working. There's a good chance I shall go into consultancy, where I'd like to do something with people, as they often play an important role in organisational change."
