“I look to hire graduates with an

arts degree because they've been

taught how to think outside the box

to solve problems and they have the

necessary critical thinking skills to

adapt to 21st century demands.”

Aaron Dus – Vice President | Associate

Partner – Strategic Planning, Rosetta

Advertising, Los Angeles

“An Arts education provides a

great foundation for a career in

a company like Fonterra. Today’s

labour market is a lot more dynamic,

fluid and global. Employers are

looking for people who can thrive

and compete in that environment –

and that means a premium on skills

like critical thinking, collaboration,

adaptability, resilience and

communication skills.

“The ability to think ahead, to work

with diverse people, to challenge

boundaries and to come up with

solutions to complex problems –

these are things that employers

increasingly value. As you move to

senior roles, organisations look for a

broader set of leadership skills and

that is where an Arts background

really comes to the fore.”

Philip Turner – (Acting) Director Global

Stakeholder Affairs – Fonterra
