Working and living in a world that has been described as Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous, (VUCA) is something that none of us can avoid and thus we need to learn to transform its threats to opportunities. Employees who are creative, resilient, and innovative problem solvers who show professional abilities and skills in coping with the rapid change, high-risk choice making and high-speed reaction, are needed in all sectors and industries. In addition to learning the specific subjects and field-based competences, students need to develop their character skills, innovation competences and high motivation. All this also requires not only toleration of uncertainty but also the ability to handle uncertainty in a productive manner. The ability to handle uncertainty in a productive manner is crucial for the present-day professionals, the organization they work in, for the educators that educate those future professionals and, finally, for society; they contribute to in the unstable and turbulent world.
