Choosing the right university can set you on a path to a successful personal and professional life. As you evaluate educational options, there are some key factors that you should consider.
Employers in every type of business, everywhere in the world, seek to hire graduates who have specific business knowledge and job skills. They also recognize and reward the innovative thinking and creativity that contributes to the success of a corporation, family business, or any other type of enterprise. This is where the combination of a business and liberal arts education offers graduates a distinct advantage.
This multidisciplinary approach is reflected in academic programs at Bryant University in Rhode Island. Bryant’s programs blend the theoretical with the practical.
“One of the things that intrigued me about Bryant is that business majors study liberal arts and the liberal arts majors study business,” said Michael Roberto, Professor of Management.
“You think differently in economics than you do in political science or marketing. And the ability to think differently is tremendously powerful.” Roberto advises students “Don’t narrow your focus so much that you miss wonderful opportunities that inform and enrich your life.”
Business students should look at the liberal arts requirements and options at any institution they consider. Liberal arts courses such as history, science, and psychology help foster creative and critical thinking skills and provide perspective on the various aspects of conducting business. Studying a variety of disciplines in the humanities, arts, and science enables business students to take conceptual and creative leaps, stretch beyond linear boundaries, and gain a deeper understanding of life, people, and business.
Whether your ambition is to become CEO of an international business or to pursue a career as a psychologist, communications executive, or economist, the balance of business and liberal arts will play a key role in your success.
