"I suggest that students really focus on a core area in their major field and then branch out widely in their non-major classes. Look beyond traditional academic stovepipes and your particular program: take classes in different departments, gain perspectives from different international and organizational cultures, don’t be afraid of the ‘hard sciences,’ and feed your imagination with fiction and art in addition to the ‘traditional’ academic books and articles."
