Tech leaders’ love letter to the liberal arts, Sandra Smith

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, EMSTL Program Director Sandra Smith opens her CIO blog post with the following:

“I am a business leader and strategy consultant with two degrees in industrial engineering and a Wharton MBA. I lead a graduate program for technology professionals aiming for business leadership. And this, though it may surprise you, is my love letter to the liberal arts.”


She goes on to explain that her love for liberal arts is shared by many business leaders who credit their liberal arts background for their capacity to think broadly and look at problems creatively through different lenses.

She explains how the Brown EMSTL program combines Brown’s excellence in both the liberal arts and science and technology to cultivate leaders that can see beyond the present and trailblaze a path to the future.
