From the Atlanta Journal Consitution, by Siemens CEO Eric Spiegel:
At our company, we employ thousands of scientists and engineers. But our salespeople also need to have enough of a technical background to discuss the merits of our products with expertise. Our marketers need to be fluent in the language of medicine, energy, and high-tech manufacturing. None of these jobs are what you would typically think of as STEM-fields, yet today, all of them require a STEM background.
But STEM isn’t just a ticket to a good job. It’s also a ticket back to the kind of prosperity that used to define the American economy.
