Student Experience

 Our faculty are experienced practitioners who are active in their field, and have regular, close interaction with students during live video chat sessions.

Small Class Size

Small classes between 15-25 students foster a highly engaging learning environment of mutual respect in which ideas, knowledge and experiences are readily exchanged.

Diverse Roles

Within each cohort there is a diverse mix of professionals from a variety of organizations — all of whom have a passion for making a difference in organizations around the world using applied psychology.

Team Collaboration

Through group discussions, activities and projects, executive students engage deeply and gain insights from each other.

Tight Community

From the first week of classes through years after graduation, students rely on their tightly connected community for camaraderie and professional and personal support.

Practical Experiences: Internship and Capstone Treatise

The Internship
During the first semester, students participate in planning and writing exercises to help identify special interests and topics they wish to pursue as part of their internship and capstone project. Classroom exercises in resume creation and interviewing skills are incorporated to assure students are skilled and prepared to attain a quality internship match.

During the internship semester, students register for an Internship course (4 units) in which they share their experiences with their peers while processing their internship through structured assignments.

Students have held internships in market research, marketing, human relations, talent acquisition, organizational development and social media communications in many corporations, nonprofits and start-ups throughout the country and now abroad (through our Dublin, Ireland Summer Internship Opportunity), seeking out opportunities that match their unique interests.
