Business and the Liberal Arts

Here at the Haverford College Center for Career and Professional Advising, we see, speak, preach and – save for climbing the bell tower to yell from the top of our lungs – do all we can to promote to the world how a liberal arts eduction is one of the best overall ways to prepare for any career.  The skills that liberal arts students develop are unmatched – our graduates make are incredibly trainable and become well rounded industry leaders.

In particular, convincing the business community about the benefits of a liberal arts education in hiring is a tough task, so it’s nice to see a leader in the business community sending the same message! Below is an article posted today on Inside Higher Ed by Edgar Bronfman, former CEO of Seagrams Corporation and current President of the Samuel Bronfman Foundation.
