MatchStar CEO Interview on the Value of a Liberal Arts Education

This article is a reprint from a 2017 interview with MatchStar CEO Tim Tonella and the University of Illinois English Department.  The UofI Alumni Mentoring Network looks for advocates who share the philosophy that a variety of educational paths still exist today for business success.  Although Tim studied both English and Math at the university prior to getting an M.B.A, he frequently comments on the amazing stories of entrepreneurs, tech founders, and MatchStar clients who did not have technical undergraduate degrees before starting their own incredible companies.
