WHO WE ARE
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.
