HUMAN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

IPADE’s Human Development Programs are designed to complement business leaders’ professional development by providing an opportunity to engage with important opportunities for personal development. Taught by IPADE faculty and guest professors, the programs cover a diverse range of topics and offer resources to support participants’ ongoing personal and spiritual development.

HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
IPADE is committed to supporting the comprehensive human development of each member of its community, beyond simply gathering knowledge or perfecting one’s management skills. Since 1976, we’ve offered various programs focused on personal development and grounded in a focus on family, society, and art. In combination with our human-centered academic offerings, these programs offer members of the IPADE community continue to develop as individuals and as value-based leaders.

DOCTRINAL DEVELOPMENT
At IPADE, we believe that an understanding of the principles that govern human nature is critical, as this understanding greatly impacts our happiness and the human and divine impact of our lives. Our Doctrinal Development Programs seek to help participants grow in the virtue of wisdom, including moral reasoning, in order to live a life that is ever closer to God.
