An Ontological Functionalist Approach to Business
Unicist Postgraduate Business Education
The Unicist Evolutionary Approach (UEA), which emulates nature, fosters growth and ensures results by using concepts, fundamentals, maximal and minimum strategies with the corresponding binary actions and the use of business objects.

Functional Education vs. Empirical Education in Business
Functional education is a new stage in business education. On the one hand, empirical education is based on providing knowledge of the know-how of operational, analytic, and systemic business processes.
On the other hand, functional education is based on driving the understanding of the functionality of adaptive business processes, where the learning of the know-why of these processes becomes necessary. Empirical education is training driven while functional education requires action-reflection-action learning processes driven by real applications and learning by teaching.
The Unicist Corporate University is the academic arm of The Unicist Research Institute (TURI), which is the world-leading research center in its segment since 1976.
The programs at the UCU give access to the unicist evolutionary approach that allows managing businesses in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
This approach increases business adaptability and the speed of growth and improves profitability in an environment of customer orientation and sustainability.
The educational approach is based on the use of unicist reflection driven education.
The Unicist Logic applied to Businesses
The Unicist Logic emulates the intelligence of nature and its maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to survive.
The Unicist Logic applied to businesses allowed accessing and managing the root causes of their functionality, dynamics and evolution.
It sustains the development of business strategies and of solutions to generate growth, reduce costs, increase customer orientation and empower the adaptability of business processes.
Unicist Reflection driven Education
They are 2-hour weekly activities that develop solutions to real universal cases in each session. These cases can be transferred to the field of action of the participants.
The reflection sessions are based on the use of a conceptual framework to develop a real solution that allows participants to manage the unicist evolutionary approach.
They are developed based on the use of virtual real time collaboration and allow participants to experience the conceptual approach to real problems in adaptive environments.
Introducing the Role of Unicist Strategic Analysts in Companies
The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) empowers the adaptiveness of business processes and their customer orientation.
It can be expected that within the next 20 years, adaptive business processes will be a standard in the world. It can be said that nowadays, more than 100,000 unicist strategic analysts are needed to support the adaptive decision-making processes of companies worldwide. It is a natural complementary role for analysts that already work in companies.
The New Stage in Business Education
The unicist logical approach to businesses and their processes allowed managing them as adaptive systems making them reasonable, understandable, predictable and manageable. This logic made the development of the Unicist Artificial Intelligence possible.
The power of the unicist logic lies in its simplicity. It only requires reasoning in terms of maximal strategies and minimum strategies and of complementation and supplementation. It implies moving from a dualistic approach towards a functionalist approach.
It is based on the discovery of the functionality of the intelligence of nature that drove to the development of the unicist logic, which allows managing the functionality, dynamics and evolution of adaptive systems with open boundaries.
The Unicist Research Institute
The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) is a world leader in its segment. Since 1976, it has been specialized in complexity sciences applied to the research on the roots of evolution and its application to social, institutional, business and individual evolution. TURI has a business arm, an academic arm and a social arm. www.unicist.org
