Should You Get a Degree in Business?
Many internal and external factors come into play when picking your college major. You want to major in something that you love (or at least have some sort of passion for), something that you are good at, and something that will land you a good job that will allow you to support yourself.
Here’s what I can tell you: pick what you love, and let the rest of the pieces fall where they may. If you are contemplating majoring in business, this article will prove to you why the major is so versatile and worthwhile.
A bachelor’s degree in business is great because it gives you a good overview of all the business realms you might want to venture into. You can start to figure out if you like the marketing aspect, the accounting side, the finance circle, or even taking on the project management side. It’s a world of possibility; because it is a broad degree, you can pretty much take it in any direction that you want, giving you a plethora of job opportunities.
If you like the fashion world, you could become a buyer for a high-end clothing company and help shape the fashion of the future. Business can help you with that. Or maybe you want to be a financial advisor for small business owners and individuals who will go to you for investing help and even just basic finance help. Many business ventures only require a bachelor’s when you start so you’ll be working right when you graduate.
Businesses also like promoting from the inside, so once you get your “in” in the specific field of business that appeals to you the most, there will always be room for growth. If the company wants you for a position that will require a master’s, they might even help you pay for it, which is actually pretty common in the business realm (I’m jealous!).
Studying business also gives many opportunities for traveling, since businesses are always trying to branch out and reach new partners across the world. If you love traveling, a business degree might be the perfect way to do it and get paid for it. My dad has been a sales manager for quite some time, which has allowed him to work in and visit many locations around the world, contributing to his resume and job capabilities.
Business is so versatile that there will always be some sort of job opening that will appeal to you, and this will cause you to have an open mind because you might start working for a company that you did not previously know existed. Maybe you’ll be helping a tutoring company expand their services so they can help more students and still get more revenue, or maybe you’ll be a sales manager for a pharmaceutical company who has a new invention for how to make taking medication through syringes more effective. Bottom line, majoring in business allows you to go in multiple directions throughout your career, so there will always be something new and exciting in store for you.
Business offers variety, so it’s a good bet, even if someone isn’t fully sure where they want their career to go. Studying business means you won’t be tied down to one thing for the rest of your life, and with the help of experience through jobs and more direction in grad school, you’ll be able to hone in on the aspects of business that you are good at and enjoy.
The verdict: Should you study business? Yes, yes you should.
