The term “liberal” deals with the fundamentals of knowledge, self-knowledge, wisdom & leadership; (concerned chiefly with broadening of the mind, not simply with technical or professional training).

“Art” deals with practice & application.

Managers draw upon all the knowledges & insights of the humanities & social sciences — on psychology & philosophy, on economics & history, on the physical sciences & ethics.

A liberal education places the human being at the centre of the quest of knowledge. Leaders of tomorrow will need vision & a study of the liberal arts will make them familiar with the humanistic ideas of great books. Too many CEO’s have a tunnel vision.

But they have to focus this knowledge on effectiveness & results.
