Liberal Arts Not Obstacle for Catholic Students Seeking Business Careers, Experts Argue
Catholic students with a background in the liberal arts are well-suited to lead successful careers in business, even as they continue to live out their faith, two prominent educators told The Cardinal Newman Society in interviews this week.

Sometimes Catholic students who have immersed themselves in the truth, beauty and goodness of the liberal arts can discount business as a career, or even look down on the practical realities of the private sector. But they might be mistaken on both accounts, educators say.

Catholics can live out their vocations in the world of business “by applying the principles of solidarity, subsidiarity and respect for human dignity to their everyday decision making,” Stewart McHie, director of the Master of Science of Business Analysis (MSBA) program at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C., told the Newman Society.

Dr. Andrew Abela, dean of the School of Business at CUA and an expert in business ethics, concurs that Catholic values are directly applicable to a career in business. “All of business, including accounting and finance, is properly understood to be oriented to serving the human person, whether that person be customer, employee, supplier, investor or neighbor,” he said.
