'The Arts Advantage in New Zealand' - Prof. Robert Greenberg

Does an Arts degree have limited value in terms of career prospects in a period of austerity? No, is Professor Greenberg's answer to this broadly held misconception. Join NZSN to hear Professor Greenberg promote the commercial value of the Arts degree when governments around the world are withdrawing funding from the Arts to concentrate on science, technology and business to provide the skills needed in a modern society. Some of the most powerful leaders in western countries over a whole range of activities, and especially commerce, come from 'arts' backgrounds. 'We need citizens who understand global problems, speak foreign languages and appreciate film and literature,' says Professor Greenberg.
