Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple; Jane Chen, founder of Embrace; and Matthew Estes, founder of Beijing-based Babycare Ltd. all have three characteristics in common -- creative thinking, a problem-solving streak, and an innovative mindset. These traits are not only a recipe for a successful career and promising future, but also a sign of a solid educational foundation. Ms. Chen and Mr. Estes, meanwhile, have one more thing in common -- a Liberal Arts education from Pomona College. "This is what a liberal arts education does so well and I would argue that developing these abilities is best done at a liberal arts college. And this is why liberal arts graduates are in demand by employers who are searching for men and women who can grow and lead their organizations," said Dr. David Oxtoby, President of Pomona College speaking at a lecture in Keystone Academy's Beijing campus.
