Auto executive defends role of humanities education

Wherever there is a need to manage and have relationship with people, there will always be a place for the humanities, says Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat S.p.A. and Chrysler Group LLC.

Recipient of a UWindsor BComm in 1979 and an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree in 2005, he spoke with Humanities Research Group director Antonio Rossini for an interview in the group’s newsletter, Athena. Marchionne’s first degree was a BA in philosophy, and he said his humanistic education opened his mind.
