Sascha’s Answer

I have a degree in Business Administration myself and agree with Michael that it is a bit of a "catch-all" of a variety of disciplines that are required to successfully run a business. If you are not sure which of the mentioned areas you are most interested in then getting a Business degree will give you the foundation to specialize in a variety of areas after you graduate. For example, I was very interested in Marketing and thought I wanted to work for an ad agency. However, after I graduated, I was more interested in Business and IT Consulting and have now spent my entire career in this field. Out of the various sub-disciplines, I would definitely recommend that you focus on Finance and Investment Management if that is an area that might appeal to you. This is not only helpful for a career in Finance but also for investing your own money.

Sarah’s Answer

I believe the "saturation" perception may come from people who pursue a business degree without having a plan of how they will turn the degree into a career. No matter what degree you get - in a saturated field or in something highly specialized - your degree should support a career you want long-term. For example, if you want to own your own business or if you want to get into finance, a business degree might be the best choice, regardless of how many other people are doing it too.

This doesn't mean you have to have all the answers for the career you want; you will always have the chance to pivot later if needed. It just helps to have a sense of direction and purpose. It can also help you communicate to others who can support you in making choices to support your long-term goals.

McKay’s Answer

Like Michael said, I do agree that business administration captures a lot of different sides of business. However, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Depending on what you want to do with your business career, it can be a good major. For example, you would benefit from starting a business because you have a little bit of knowledge in lot's of different topics. If you find that you want to specialize in something such as marketing, you still will get the chance to capture a little bit of everything in business, while learning a deeper understanding of marketing. What I've come to realize while looking for jobs out of college is that no matter what you specialize in within business, you have the ability (usually) to try different areas of business out.

Kylee’s Answer

I will be graduating this upcoming May with a BBA in marketing and a minor in management. When I started my freshman year of college, I had no idea what exactly I wanted to do, but I knew it was something that would deal with business. Therefore, I started my degree in general business. This is something I would recommend for someone who is interested in working in the business but does not know yet what they want to do. After you take some of the basic business classes, such as, economics, marketing, finance, etc, you will find what your niche is. After my sophomore year, I fell in love with the idea of marketing. That is when I set my major and minor to what it currently is. If after your first year or two after college you still don't know what your niche is, I would recommend sticking with business administration. With a business administration degree, you get a little bit of everything, marketing, finance, economics, entrepreneurship, etc. I hope this helps!

I graduated with a degree in Business Administration and in my experience, having this degree has brought me a great foundation and many transferrable skills. It has helped a lot with the program that I am in at CVS Health - the General Management Development Program. Since the degree is so broad, it gives you a lot of opportunity within a variety of different industries and business areas. I would recommend this as a great degree to pursue.

Rebecca’s Answer

I am not sure when and from who would say Business Management and Administration is saturated. Almost all industries it need talents from Business Management and Administration. The graduates of the subjects can be executives of the corporates or an entrepreneur.
The more important is what your interest is. Are you interested on this subject? The world keeps changing everyday. The career that has high demand today but it may change on the day when you graduate. You better choose the subject that you are interested rather than the market demand at that time you choose the subject.
Also, within Business Management and Administration, it can be subdivided into different majors, e.g. Accounting, Finance, International Business and Global Management, etc. You can explore which one you are interested and pursue.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Christopher’s Answer

I am getting ready to graduate with a degree in business administration this year. I have found it particularly helpful and have learned a lot through the classes I have taken at my school. When I started as a freshman, I knew that I wanted to study business but I didn't have anything specific related to business that I wanted to study so I chose business administration. I am happy that I made this decision as I have been able to take a variety of business courses (accounting, economics, marketing, management, finance, and even courses on organizational behavior and negotiation skills). I have gotten a bit of experience learning about many different concepts within business that I know will serve me well as there are so many components that play a part in businesses and specific industries.
