“The breadth of studies that I had at Notre Dame, whether it was in philosophy, or theology, or economics, or history, all developed a context for me and will for any liberal arts student,” said Bob Conway ’66.
Conway is senior director for The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., in London, England. He feels that the writing and communication skills he gained as a government major were critical to his success and are essential in any career.
Conway’s appreciation for a liberal arts education carried over to his recruiting efforts at Goldman Sachs. “I would seek out those students who were excellent students in whatever field that they chose to study,” said Conway. “An art history major to me was as valuable as a finance major.”
