LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Laurie Yates, DMgt, discusses the value of integrating liberal arts education with business and other professions Thursday, Apr. 24.
Yates’ colloquium presentation “Management Through a Liberal Arts Lens” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210 at EOU. A reception with time for questions and answers will follow.
Corporate responsibility, global sustainability and ethical practices are concerns organizations are facing today, and to which the public, employees and customers are demanding solutions.
Yates will share results of a recent forum in which education and business leaders tackled the issue of preparing tomorrow’s business executives. Referring to a world driven by innovation, they found that the capabilities of a liberal arts education may have become America’s most valuable economic asset.
Yates is an assistant professor of business and teaches for EOU’s programs at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham.
