A Practical Education: Why Liberal Arts Majors Make Great Employees (King Library)
Start Date: 11/29/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 11/29/2017End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
In his latest book, A Practical Education: Why Liberal Arts Majors Make Great Employees, Dr. Stross shows that liberal arts majors can succeed not in spite of, but because of, their education. The book presents ten profiles of recent Stanford graduates who chose humanities majors. The stories of their first-job experiences in Silicon Valley may embolden other employers to give liberal arts majors a similar chance to demonstrate how multi-capable they are.

Dr. Stross is a professor in the School of Management in the College of Business. Among his eight previous books is The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World (2007).

Lunch will be provided!

This event is a part of the University Scholar Series. It is co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the University Library, the Spartan Bookstore, Faculty Affairs and Graduate Studies & Research. For additional information about the University Scholar Series, go to library.sjsu.edu/uss.
