Danielle’s Answer

  • 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.

Hi Bryan,

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.

Depending what career field you want to pursue. For me with a degree in business management: Communications, Psychology, Human Resources. Operations management, Statistics; those are some of the classes I found to be useful. Accounting is important to understand the basics, but I did find it difficult to follow. I believe it was more to do with my professor who was not great. The other subjects I had classes for were great and inspiring!

Raghunandan’s Answer

The future of business requires strategy, communication, finance and innovation as key ingredients of business professionals. The life after pandemic will force everyone to be creative, network virtually as well as demand integrity/trust amongst humans.

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!

Simeon’s Answer

If you are going to be in finance or accounting, your math classes and statistics could be helpful for you. If you can get an accounting class at all in high school, it will be useful. Lastly, I'd say to look into tech related jobs. Any kind of software proficiency you can develop will pay dividends.
