If you’ve always dreamed of launching a startup or growing an established company, a bachelor’s degree will get you there. With a bachelor’s in business administration, students can choose a track or area of study like statistics, finance, or global management. By choosing a general bachelor’s in business, students learn business fundamentals while having opportunities to explore their own interests. As a business major you could also add a concentration or minor in international business, information technology management, financial analysis, entrepreneurship, real estate, corporate finance, risk management, business analytics, or sustainable business. Other universities offer accounting, economics, finance, and information systems as separate programs through their schools of business.

Are you management material?

If you want to climb the ladder to a senior level position, then you’ll need to earn a master’s degree. The most widely offered and highly desired business program is the Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). MBA programs can be completed online or on campus, and they require between 30 and 60 credits of coursework. But an MBA isn’t the only way to advance your career in business. Programs are also available in specialty areas like accounting, business analytics, human resources, investor relations, taxation, information security, and supply chain management.
