“The best preparation for life and career – be it in finance, entrepreneurship or something else – is a liberal arts degree.”

– Edgar M. Bronfman, former CEO of the Seagram Corporation

“After answering my questions, my future boss looked across the desk and asked, ‘Are you sure you want this position, because honestly it seems like you could do any job here.’”

– Matt Worley ’12

“Christendom College provides a broad knowledge base and develops core skills that can be applied to many professions. These core skills include how to think logically and theoretically, assess ideas, analyze, and communicate effectively. By attending Christendom, I built a strong foundation allowing me to transition easily between various types of executive positions and work environments.’”

– Michele Velasco ’91
Vice President for Finance

“A Christendom College education opens endless opportunities and confers enormous obligations. The time I spent at Christendom enabled me to earn a valuable liberal arts degree, taught me intellectual discipline and effective work habits, and helped me to prioritize the important things in my life. Many students in American colleges and universities today acquire a narrow, overly specialized education, but employers and graduate schools are actively seeking well-rounded, liberal arts undergraduates. Following my graduation, I enrolled in Northeastern University’s Graduate School of Professional Accounting in Boston, MA, where 90% of students have liberal arts, non-business backgrounds. I encourage each of you to consider a future in business. A Christendom degree does not prohibit entry into the field; on the contrary, it facilitates success.”

– Sean Kay ’97, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers

The Power of the Liberal Arts

Through the study of the Catholic liberal arts, you will encounter a universal study of knowledge—through Mathematics, History, Literature, Science, Classics, and Political Science—unified by the central role played by Philosophy and Theology. John Henry Newman noted that this 2000-year time-tested curriculum actually expands the intellect, empowering you to win in the marketplace when competing with graduates of other colleges or universities.
