Organizational Dynamics sharing ideas in class

Organizational Dynamics Programs courses

By bringing together students from a wide range of professional backgrounds—corporate, nonprofit, military, and government—we foster innovation in our classrooms. When students from fields such as law, human resources, education, healthcare, insurance, and technology come together with our faculty, they build new conceptual connections and address problems more creatively.

Format and schedule

Organizational Dynamics Programs courses may take place in-person (on campus), online, or a mix of the two. While some courses incorporate asynchronous content, they are primarily synchronous and require regular online or in-person attendance. While it is not required that US citizens reside full time in Philadelphia, students are required to be in person for classes and events. International students must reside in the United States.

Our courses are scheduled to meet the needs of students who are working full time. Often, our classes meet once a week for three hours in the evening. Some of our classes are offered as weekend intensives, which means classes meet for full days over a few weekends. Still others offer a schedule that mixes these two schedules. The program staff provides a calendar for students to navigate our range of class meeting times.

Most students take one or two courses a semester so that they may complete the program while managing other personal and professional obligations.
