The OD Institute is Africa’s premier tertiary institution solely devoted to training Organisation Development (OD) Practitioners and Change Managers. It is a rigorous practical and research oriented institution offering the Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) and Master of Arts (MA) programmes in Organisation Development.
The OD Institute was established after a decade of institutional partnership between the University of Cape Coast (UCC) in Ghana and the Organisation Capacity Improvement Consultants (OCIC) International, United Kingdom, in running the programme at the Masters and Post Graduate Diploma levels between 2003 and 2014. The OCIC has transformed to become the OD Institute which is affiliated to the University of Cape Coast and the International Society for Organization Development and Change (ISODC),USA and accredited by Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC), formerly the National Accreditation Board (NAB), Ghana, to run courses in Organisation Development at the graduate level.
OD involves the facilitation of an organization’s capacity to self-reflect, self-regulate and take control of its own processes of improvement and learning with a view to effectively achieving its reason(s) for existing.
The PGD and MA programmes in OD offered at the OD Institute are well informed by the current trends and changes in the global economy and the need for Africa to harness its Institutional growth and leadership potential in the global economy.
