“Our Postgraduate Certificate in Human Potential for the Digital Economy is an introduction to the possibility of living a whole and fulfilled life, where connection and digital technology amplify conscious focus and unleash human potential for a greater good.”

In keeping with the Lab’s style, students will have access to industry-leading professionals who will guide them through contemporary thought and practice in business, technology and innovation.
