Getting a liberal arts education provided me with the opportunity to explore several different areas … Ultimately, the Business Department is where I landed and was most passionate. The liberal arts education definitely worked great for me and provided me with important life skills such as critical thinking, teamwork, economic and societal differences, various political perspectives, and communication skills.
