Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other

Business, or the art of making a living by producing, buying, or selling goods and services, is a degree that translates across a number of job titles. Business degrees are most commonly baccalaureates at the beginning of the ladder, but there are also some institutions that offer business associate degrees. There are any number of master’s options, including the popular choice, an MBA, when it comes to graduate education.

Associate Level

Associate degrees in business typically take two years and are often considered stepping stones. They may provide the boost needed to land entry-level jobs in sales, administration, or office management.

Baccalaureate

Bachelor’s degrees in business are the most common form. Core classes in a business curriculum include an introduction to economics, business administration, business law, marketing, ethics, human resource management, accounting and financial management, and, of course, business management. Those basic courses are often complemented with a specific area of focus, which may be delving deeper into an already-listed subject, or exploring new areas, including project management, entrepreneurship, and more.

Business degrees also pair well with a number of minors or for double majoring. Foreign language and Business can be great for international work, while pairing Business with Psychology or Sociology can be beneficial in the advertising industry. Business and Art is a smart pairing for combining creativity with an economic mindset, which can be an asset careers such as graphic design.

Whether you decide to pair your degree with another or not, business baccalaureates, depending on focus, can lead to jobs in logistics, business management, accounting, finance, public relations, operations management, international business, human resources management, marketing, or business administration.

Graduate Education

The most natural progression for those with business degrees wanting higher education is to obtain an MBA, or a Master of Business Administration. These programs typically take about two years to complete, but there are accelerated options that can be completed in one year. The program capstone for an MBA is business strategy, using business ethics, case studies, and team projects. Information technology, financial management, and operations research are typically included in core subjects, as well. Many programs end with an MFT-MBA, Major Field Test for MBAs, to assess retention of skills and knowledge from the program.

Careers for MBAs include: Business Analyst/Strategist, Portfolio Manager, Director, Operations Manager/Associate/Analyst, Management Consultant, Entrepreneur.
