What you need to know about studying a Business degree
A business degree may sound like a generic degree that everyone is pursuing or have pursued. However, there are still some things you should know about studying a business degree before you follow the footsteps of others.
So, what exactly is a business degree?
A typical business degree teaches you aspects of finance, marketing, management and administration during your first year of study. Subsequently, you will be given an opportunity to choose your specialisation which usually includes Accounting, Advertising, Business Management, Business Analytics, Economics, Finance, Human Resources, Marketing etc. A business degree is definitely a great way to develop many of the transferable skills needed for use in a business environment including analytical ability, communication and presentations skills, leadership skills etc.
What can you do with a business degree?
A business degree prepares you for the fast-paced, fast-changing business world – opening a world of possibilities for you. Business graduates will find a range of careers that are directly related to their qualification. The common graduate careers for a business graduate include roles within auditing, banking, logistics, public relations, the public sector, marketing and advertising etc.
While many of these careers are open to graduates in any subject, some employers will have a preference for graduates with a business background, and for others it may be a definite requirement. For example, if you graduate with an accounting degree, the likelihood of you working in an accounting firm will be higher than someone else with another business degree. Moreover, you could possibly be granted exemptions from papers in professional examinations.
