Investing As A Social Science, Forbes

As shared by Matt Papadopoulos (BA 2011 Sociology), this Forbes article shares a Manhattan businessman’s thoughts on the importance of having studied history, especially during a time like the recent financial crisis.

“After considerable thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that the broader, more liberal arts-oriented courses I took in my undergraduate years did far more to help me to adapt to what was deemed to be ‘economically unprecedented’ than the more technical lessons I learned in business school.”

Matt is a member of the LSA Dean’s Young Alumni Council.
