Description

UT Grad Students Present Practical Applications of the Humanities for the Modern Workplace

  • Is the idea of “corporate culture” a farce?
  • How should organizations prepare for generational differences in approaches to leadership?
  • Is the future female?
  • What can business leaders learn from sports coaches about management in a free-market environment?
  • How can nonprofit organizations maintain a focus on their core mission in periods of growth and success?
  • How can leaders use their agreeable personalities to their advantage?


These intriguing questions and many others have been addressed at previous editions of Practical Applications of the Humanities for the Modern Workplace. You are invited to join us for the 2017 edition of this event, which features exciting research by Master’s degree candidates in the Human Dimensions of Organizations (HDO) program at UT Austin.

Taught by some of the University’s top professors, HDO Master’s students explore a diverse range of disciplines – including psychology, history, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, and rhetoric – and cover topics such as leadership, ethics, communication, change management, and decision-making.

The HDO Class of 2017 will be presenting their Capstone Projects to the public on December 8 at the AT&T Executive Conference Center. These projects, which explore the applicability of the humanities and social and behavioral sciences to business and nonprofit organizations, serve as a culmination of all the work students have put forth in pursuit of their degree. Students will be on hand to answer general questions about their projects and to explore how their ideas may be applied to your organization.

Light refreshments will be provided.
