Lifelong Learning Session by Prof. Raj Raghunathan on the Three Pillars of Happiness
As part of Lifelong Learning offerings from the school, we are planning to have a learning session in Hyderabad with Professor Raj Raghunathan. Professor Raghunathan is Associate Professor, Department of Marketing, McCombs School of Business and is a visiting scholar at Indian School of Business.
As part of the session, Professor Raghunathan will be talking about “The three pillars of happiness”. Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of studies have explored the topic of happiness, and we now have a very good idea of what it takes to lead a happy and fulfilling life. In this talk, Professor Raj Raghunathan will discuss the broad themes that emerge from the research on happiness and highlight the “three pillars of happiness”—the three things that are crucial for anyone who wants to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov 28th, 2015. We’d like you to indicate your interest and availability to attend the session at The Three Pillars of Happiness.
