Business as a Liberal Art.
Varner, Iris I.
Since one of the main arguments against business as part of liberal education seems to be that it has practical applicability, one should look deeper into the use of the more traditional liberal education subjects. Historically, what we interpret as pure liberal education had at the same time high practical value; this is still true. What seems to make business so different is partly that business involves huge sums of money, and money is somehow suspect in academe. Theoretical and philosophical as well as practical considerations are becoming more and more a part of business, and thus of business education, and bear a close relationship to other subjects taught as part of the liberal arts education.
