Organizational management degrees abroad

Organizational management is a growing business field that focuses on using the different levels of company leadership to set goals, monitor outcomes, and improve communication.

A degree in organizational management aims to give you the skills to create and lead teams in a range of business industries and settings. You’ll examine the human elements of management, including human resources, communication methods, ethics, culture, and group behavior.

Choosing to study organizational management overseas is a great way to access the best programs available. You’ll also be exposed to different organizational practices and cultures, which can give you a more thorough and diverse understanding of the subject.

Organizational management program structure

Organizational management degrees are available at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and are mainly offered at US universities, but can also be found in the UK and Australia. Programs that cover similar areas include organizational communications, organizational behavior, and organizational leadership.

At bachelor’s level, programs are available as a BSc or a BA, depending on the precise program you choose. For example, organizational communication programs are usually offered as BA, whereas organizational leadership is usually available as a BSc.

If you do choose to study in the US, you’ll study in an undergraduate program for four years. You can study a range of subjects before declaring your major in organizational management.

If you already have a bachelor’s degree in a related field or have several years of work experience, you can choose to study a master’s in organizational management. Programs are available as an MBA, MSc, or MComm (Master of Communication), and typically take either one or two years to complete.

Teaching methods will vary across programs and modules, but you can expect to attend lectures, seminars, and workshops. Many organizational management programs will also include a year in industry where you can gain hands on experience in a business workplace.

The exact subjects and modules you’ll be taught will be different for every university, but there are some topics you can expect to cover, including:

  • Foundations of organizational management
  • Organization strategy
  • Organizational behavior
  • Understanding organizational change
  • Business research and study skills
  • Ethics and corporate social responsibility
  • Equality and diversity
  • Leadership skills
