A CEO’s Advice: Study History

So you want to be a CEO? Study History.

That’s the advice of a former CEO of the Seagram Corporation. Edgar M. Bronfman studied History at Williams College and McGill University before launching a career in business.

Bronfman argues that Liberal Arts degrees provide an excellent training for future business leaders: “My advice, however, is simple, but well-considered: Get a liberal arts degree. In my experience, a liberal arts degree is the most important factor in forming individuals into interesting and interested people who can determine their own paths through the future.”

Inside Higher Ed published Bronfman’s essay online.
