When Wendy Wang ’06 came to Notre Dame, she was focused on pursuing a career in academia. But when her plans changed, her liberal arts training moved with her.
The skills she developed in the College of Arts and Letters have served her well in the business world, including in her current role as vice president at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm.
“The value of a liberal arts education is not so much about the here and now, because a lot of the jobs and challenges that currently exist will change in the next five or 10 years,” Wang said. “A liberal arts education prepares you for future challenges.”
