- Have you decided on which business school you plan to apply to/attend? I recommend researching a variety of schools and compare the programs they offer. Taking time to determine what you are seeking in a business program and researching available options will help you make an informed decision. You may also seek out guidance as you are researching different schools. You can schedule time with a counselor who can provide insight into any courses you may want to seek prior to enrolling in a business program. I had specific goals and criteria in mind when seeking out a school to complete my business degree. I was a full time employee and wanted to ensure the program would accommodate my schedule. I also sought a program that I could complete within a reasonable timeframe while also focusing on my career. I had the option to choose an area of focus during the program. This is something you may already know going in or you may determine as you work through the program.
I was a finance major in college, and I think that provided me with a firm foundation. Finance and accounting are the basis of business and are critical to understand in order to learn what motivates companies. That being said, it is important to do what you love, so if number aren’t your thing feel free to study a different part of business! Companies need all types of people who study different things.
Accounting, marketing, statistics, finance, strategy. A well rounded curriculum of these classes will help form a solid foundation,
We need to connect with a true sense of clarity as well as Leadership from within, which most curriculum may not inculcate and hence it is important to recognize where we stand and how we would like to conduct ourselves to make a difference. All the best!
