Rethinking the Value of a Business Major

With so many students who are attending universities and selecting a major within the college of business the following Wall Street Journal article may prove to be worth considering. A link to the complete story by Melissa Korn is provided here.

Companies say they need flexible thinkers with innovative ideas and a broad knowledge base derived from exposure to multiple disciplines. And while most recruiters don’t outright avoid business majors, companies in consulting, technology and even finance say they’re looking for candidates with a broader academic background.

Liberal-arts and the education philosophy of the U.S. may very well be the better choice for future professionals.

In the U.S., the 4th of July is an important date as it is the day remembered as the date of birth for the United States of America. At the birth of this nation, there were only 13 states on the east coast. Today, in all 50 States, Americans celebrate this holiday with cook outs, fireworks, games and by displaying American flags. In this video, two students attending Hardin-Simmons in Abilene, Texas enjoyed the festivities of the afternoon before watching the night skies light up with fireworks displayed at a local park.

11 Year-Old Inspiration

Watch Video from NBC’s LA News

Moshe Cai Cavalin - 11 years old

Moshe Cai Cavalin - 11 years old

Moshe Kai Cavalin, 11, graduates with honors from East Los Angeles Community College with a Associate Arts degree in Liberal Studies this week, but just don’t call him a genius.

“I consider myself a regular kid who works hard and does his best,” says this only child of a Taiwanese mother and an Israeli father.

When Cavalin started college at the age of 8, he may have been the youngest person in class, but he ended up tutoring some of his 19- and 20-year-old classmates in math and science.  Cavalin was one of 3 in the school graduating with a 4.0 GPA.

Astrophysics is his passion. Albert Einstein and Bruce Lee are among his idols. But what he doesn’t wast his time on would surprise most young students – video games.

What Moshe is more interested in is the improvement of societies wellbeing.

“I feel it’s a waste of time playing video games because it’s not helping humanity in any way,” says the 11-year-old, who wants to use his knowledge to change the world.
