Bronfman Praises Liberal Arts

imgresEdgar M. Bronfman, famous Williams student and donor, has a new article Inside Higher Education on “Business and the Liberal Arts,” where he writes:

…adaptability is where a liberal arts degree comes in. There is nothing that makes the mind more elastic and expandable than discovering how the world works. Developing and rewarding curiosity will be where innovation finds its future. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, attributed his company’s success in 2011 to being a place where “technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities … yields us the results that makes our heart sing.”
