My studies as a Bethel history major greatly prepared me for the work I’m doing in due diligence and risk management. I learned how to think more critically about situations where the right “answer” isn’t always apparent, and how to write well… Training in history and other humanities gets one comfortable dealing with ambiguities. It helps you assess the significance of facts and order their importance relative to other facts. Being able to focus on the big picture, while still knowing how the small details relate to that big picture, is a huge advantage in business, and something that studies in history can train one to do.
