Create Sustainable Change

Are you passionate about change management and leadership? Do you want to become part of an international group of like-minded change practitioners? Do you share our conviction that change can only be achieved through people? If so, this intensive international program, run jointly by two of Europe’s leading business schools - HEC Paris and Said Business School, University of Oxford, will equip you with the skills and know-how to deal effectively and creatively with the human dimensions of change in organisations, and the challenges they pose.

Increase your self-awareness and understanding of the organisations and wider environments in which you work.

Take the time to reflect, analyse, learn from and leverage change more effectively.

Study in a vibrant, intercultural environment with participants of 20 nationalities.

Join the HEC Paris and Oxford Business Alumni networks as well as the Change Leaders Community.


There hasn't been a more important time to get involved in courageous conversations about change.Marc Thompson


The program aims to :

  • Broaden your repertoire of intervention approaches. You will be exposed to multidisciplinary approaches to change at individual, group, organisational and societal levels. You will add more colours to your palette by working with multiple theoretical frameworks, methods and interventions.
  • Develop sustainable organisations. You will explore how to work with wisdom, courage and humanity as you build attractive, sustainable organisations that are meaningful to all stakeholders.
  • Enhance your capacity for critical thinking. You will explore new ideas and integrate them into your practice, building a cognitive edge that can reframe change challenges.
  • Sharpen your reflection and develop your self-awareness so that you gain more self confidence as a change agent in complex contexts. Our program seeks to deepen personal insight so that you can work with others more effectively during change. You will make sense of your own change practice from a theoretical perspective, developing your identity as a change agent and understanding how the self can be a powerful instrument for change.
