Why tech industries are demanding more liberal arts graduates - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Liberal arts remain at the center of necessary leadership development and communication skills. Liberal arts and sciences are not an outdated element of training standing in the way of the nation’s science and technology imperatives. Rather, they are the concrete foundation of global connectivity in communication, leadership, innovation and enterprise. That is the case which will be made in a forthcoming report produced by the Education Advisory Board. The report, “Reclaiming the value of liberal arts for the 21st century,” makes the case for institutions establishing stronger connections between traditional majors in the arts and professional disciplines, and encourages more effective marketing of liberal arts opportunities and successes. Set for release next month, the report discusses the changing landscape of higher education. http://www.educationdive.com/news/why-tech-industries-are-demanding-more-liberal-arts-graduates/423093/
