Innovation can’t simply be ordered up. To create and sustain an innovative culture, you have to go beyond being managers to becoming leaders. HDO can play a fundamental role in this transformation.”

HDO Master’s Commencement 2021 Events:

Practical Applications of the Humanities for the Modern Workplace
December 10, 2021 • 10:00 am-Noon • UT Austin

Each Master’s student produces a Capstone Project that allows them to personalize HDO’s multidisciplinary curriculum and apply it to an issue(s) of their choosing. These projects, which explore the applicability of the humanities and social and behavioral sciences to businesses and nonprofit organizations, serve as a culmination of all the work students have put forth in pursuit of their degree.

The Class of 2021 will be presenting their Capstone Projects to the general public, faculty members, business and nonprofit leaders, advisors, and family members at HDO’s annual Practical Applications of the Humanities for the Modern Workplace event on December 10.

At this event, students present posters that summarize the key points covered in their Capstone Project, answer your questions about their research, and explore how their ideas may be applied to your organization.
