Overview

Students of the Integrated Science and Business program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater may focus on biology, chemistry, geography, geology or physics, while courses from the management curriculum provide insight into business operations. Whether they practice in their field of science or work in managerial or strategic roles in scientific companies, graduates have the opportunity to explore numerous career paths.

Students can add a water emphasis to this major, which helps prepare graduates for careers in water research, technology and sustainability, as well as manufacturing and business operations. Water scarcity, pollution, climate change and other problematic water trends pose major challenges to businesses.

Understanding how businesses use water, what the costs are and how to reduce them, and where the value in water is and how to preserve it are increasingly desired skills.
