Faculty will lead discussion on select topics prior to opening the floor to prospective student questions. Participants may attend in-person or via conference call.

Human Science (HS) is a discipline rooted in the European scholarly tradition of qualitative theory. HS programs investigate issues that intersect between art, science and philosophy to discover how individuals and societies can improve their condition.

Organizational Systems programs are designed for students that want to contribute to emerging social needs for transformative, innovative, sustainable organizational and social change. Our goal is to produce graduates who become leaders in sustainable organizational changes all over the world.

Admissions representatives will also be in attendance to answer any questions you may have. To learn more and register, please RSVP HERE.
