MS in Positive Organization Development & Change Student Experience

Changing the World, Changing You

This unique master’s degree program is Weatherhead’s response to the increasing demand for rigorous, relevant education in the emerging fields of positive psychology and positive organizational development and scholarship, within the ever-changing context of organizational behavior.

While our positive organizational development program encourages students' awareness of external opportunities to develop flourishing human systems, the Master of Science in Positive Organization Development & Change (MPOD) curriculum remains grounded in the belief that the self can be a powerful instrument for change and that personal and professional development go hand in hand. The MPOD learning model provides experiential opportunities for participants to become more self-aware, to practice and experiment with new skills, and to give and receive coaching that can be life-changing.

Our positive organizational leadership degree program educates and develops leaders who will create enduring social systems that offer value to all stakeholders, nourish the cooperative human spirit, and contribute to ecologically sustainable societies and global well-being.
