Wrisë Booker ’72 discusses workplace personality types with students in the 2011 Org Studies Program.
Organizational Studies requires a month-long summer session during which rising seniors participate in workshops, lectures, and seminars both on campus and off-site. Past summer locations have included Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Greenwich, and Bristol, where students toured the ESPN campus.
The summer session, and the Organizational Studies Program as a whole, is designed to sharpen students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills—and to teach them how to work together within an organization, whether they’re debating the best layout for a research lab, projecting financial growth for new organizations, or learning about the “time value” of money.
Presenters represent an extensive range of organizational expertise, and share their insights in formats ranging from workshops to hands-on exercises to guided debates to simulations.
