Grant Summary

$75,000 over 24 months to build upon the work of the Business, Entrepreneurship, and Liberal Learning (BELL) project, which considered the value of integrating liberal education goals into undergraduate business education and studied to most effective ways to do so. This work culminated in a book, Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education: Liberal Learning for the Profession (2011), co-authored by Anne Colby, Thomas Ehrlich, William M. Sullivan, and Jonathan Dolle. Through the work of this particular grant, the Aspen Institute will work to disseminate the recommendations from this book by holding meetings for institutions to help them implement the key concepts of the book in their own business and liberal arts programs.
