What is Business by LSA?
According to former Twitter CEO and LSA graduate Dick Costolo:
“A broad liberal arts degree and deep immersion in the humanities is actually vital to developing our very best leaders and in fact without that education, none of you would develop the habits of mind and frameworks for creative synthesis and lateral thinking that really make the very best leaders in the world.”
By combining a diverse and intensive academic curriculum with enriching co-curricular activities (internships, research, study abroad, employment), your LSA degree will prepare you to excel in myriad business fields. Over 93% of recent LSA graduates were employed in more than 50 different fields or continuing their education.
Start taking ownership of your future. Talk to your Newnan advisor (and advisors in other departments and programs in LSA) about how you can develop core competencies to excel in your business career.
