Magic World of Design
"The learning from these sessions provided me with a depth of theoretical and experiential learning that is invaluable. I didn’t realize how much I absorbed until I came back to work and applied some of the learnings in my day-to-day interaction."
"For the first time in a long time, I became energized about the possibility of becoming an MSOD practitioner and help people and organizations transform. I finally got clarity on the direction I needed to take my career."
"With dedicated days of experiential learning designed to deepen our understanding of key concepts through exploration rather than lecture, it was clear to me that our course design was leveraging the backdrop to enhance our learning."

"I spent a lot of time daydreaming about my life in the MSOD program before I decided to apply. Each visit to the website was like a fun little holiday for me...Today, that daydream has become my reality."
