About

Human Dimensions of Organizations (HDO) is an innovative graduate program at UT Austin designed for working professionals. 

Overview

By exploring diverse disciplines such as psychology, history, literature, sociology, philosophy, and anthropology, with some of the University’s best professors, an HDO Master’s degree will give you the tools to: 

  • Discern the root causes of why businesses and nonprofits actually work, and why they often don’t. 
  • Understand how and why the key components of organizations—people—behave and work the way they do. 
  • Develop leadership skills to create lasting and effective change in organizations of any size or type. 
HDO courses are led by UT Austin’s top faculty and cover topics such as leadership, communication, ethics, change management, and decision-making.HDO’s practice-oriented curriculum draws on disciplines in the humanities and social and behavioral sciences. This multidisciplinary approach develops students into well-rounded “internal consultants,” ready to tackle a wide range of organizational challenges. There are no exams; assessments are designed to provide students with practical skills for professional success. 

Each cohort consists of experienced professionals from a diverse range of fields, allowing for an exchange of problems and solutions across sectors. All students complete a Capstone Project, allowing them to draw on what they’ve learned to tackle an organizational problem of their choice.
