It takes place over an eight month period and provides guidance in three areas: ethics and human values, human development, and the strengthening of “soft skills” needed for success in the professional world, including leadership qualities, communication skills, and time management. Over 1,300 university students from 20 different areas of study have taken part in the program since its inception.
