Navigating Uncertainty: Connecting Humanities and Business Perspectives on Risk and Reward

The development of one revised and two new courses, with a mentor-supported learning opportunity for undergraduate business majors, on the theme of navigating uncertainty.

This proposal seeks to expand the role and impact of the humanities in the undergraduate business curriculum at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in three ways by: 1) creating two new and one substantially redesigned humanities seminars offered to business and humanities majors during their first two years of introductory college coursework, focused on the topic "Navigating Uncertainty"; 2) developing a project-based, mentor-supported co-curricular experiential learning opportunity for interdisciplinary teams of upper-level undergraduates where they will literally experience the process of navigating uncertainty; and 3) bringing cross-disciplinary faculty thought leadership to bear in exploring our theme in a visiting speaker series titled "Foreseeing the Future."
