“I find people that have a liberal arts background have a broader view of the world and will go farther in business.”

–Michael Fromm, CEO of Fromm Electric

“The liberal arts education I received at Christendom prepared me to think critically and to read and write well, which of course are essential skills… It also prepared me to shift from an editorial career to a marketing career. The liberal arts, which are good in and for themselves, allow you to adapt to different situations and problems. They train your mind for life, not simply a narrow skill or specialization. It’s an education that allows you to adapt to new opportunities.”

– Christian Tappe ’07
Director of Marketing
TAN Books & Saint Benedict Press

“As the president of a dynamic, fast-growing enterprise, I find that my role as a business leader has been shaped by the liberal arts education I received at Christendom College. I was a history major, and my inspiration for leadership is drawn from Dr. Carroll’s heroic characters – Charles Martel, Queen Isabel of Spain, Pope Saint John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and many others. The courage these leaders exhibited in their lives has encouraged my vision for a business that leads by example. On an additional note, over the past 15 years, having hired multiple Christendom alumni, I am continually impressed by their diverse knowledge base, ability to think critically, and high ethical standards. I will continue to seek out graduates of Christendom, as I believe they are uniquely prepared for the business world.””

President, RLA Mid-Atlantic

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.
