Wharton School Launches New Course, Delivered Remotely, on the Impact and Implications of Coronavirus/COVID-19
Date:3/11/2020

As the world grapples with the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has developed a new course, conducted remotely, to address in real time how global business and financial uncertainty can be managed in the wake of such dramatic events.

The six-week, half-credit course is titled “Epidemics, Natural Disasters, and Geopolitics: Managing Global Business and Financial Uncertainty.” It begins March 25, 2020 after an extended spring break resulting from the University's recent announcement that courses will move to remote instruction to limit the effects of the coronavirus. Students will join the course via livestream. Over 450 students from across the University have already expressed interest and pre-registered.

“There are significant business lessons to be learned from the global response to the coronavirus outbreak, and Wharton is at the forefront of sharing valuable insights and creating a community to exchange ideas,” said Wharton Dean Geoff Garrett. “This is a teachable moment for the global academic community, and this course is just one example of how Wharton is coming together to provide support during a time of heightened anxiety and ambiguity.”

Course lesson titles include “Leading amid Unpredictable Rapidly Changing Events with Contested Facts,” “Financial Market Reactions to the Coronavirus and Disaster Risk,” “Emotional Contagion and Epidemics,” “U.S.-China Relations after the Trade Wars and the Coronavirus” and more.

The course has been developed by Management Professor Mauro Guillen, who will join other distinguished Wharton faculty including Sigal Barsade, Mohamed El-Erian, Zeke Emanuel, Geoff Garrett, Martine Haas, Sarah Light, Carolyn Kousky, Howard Kunreuther, John Paul MacDuffie, Barbara Mellers, Katy Milkman, Jeremy Siegel, Beth Simmons and Kent Smetters as course lecturers.

“We are proud to launch this course as it draws directly from the current geopolitical climate and will offer students insights into this crisis and all types of high-risk events,” said Prof. Guillen. “I’m thrilled to take part in this course which was developed very quickly and through the generous support of professors and staff who understand the urgency.”
