The world today is becoming increasingly complex and as a result of this exponentially cumulative intricacy,
industries today need, not only engineers and technologists, but people who generate creative ideas in a data rich
world. As Steve Jobs said: “It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with
Liberal Arts that yields the results that make our hearts sing.” It is not a coincidence that one third of Fortune
500’s CEOs have a Liberal Arts degree.
The skills to succeed in 21’st century are much different than traditionally understood by us. Today
multidisciplinary thinking is important along with collaboration. Companies need people with broad set of skills and
experience to solve wicked problems, people with passion, integrity and intelligence.
Various jobs in industry need professionals who create meaningful decisions out of seemingly disparate fields of
knowledge. For example, a sociologist can help a software company to design and develop software for public funded
poverty alleviation program or a psychologist can assist a product designer to create a successful product campaign
for a company.
Liberal Art professionals look at the problem from many different angles, which can scarcely be seen by a hard-core
technologist, engineer or programmer and that’s why they are so special. At the end of the day even the most
fascinating technology can fail if it can’t serve people for whom it is created. On the other hand, simple gadgets
and services with less of technology can make wonders in markets if they are accessible to their target users and
promoted using the best social and soft-skills.
