What should I consider when choosing a career in the business industry?
I am not expert but if you are trying to have your own business, it might be smart to look into business majors or degrees. Marketing, finance, accounting, management, are some that come to mind. That is if what you wanna learn and develop is on the business side only. Fashion I know less off, but I am sure there are schools with fashion design programs you could look into. I would recommend though you approach this in both fronts by majoring in the field you need to develop more, like major in business if you already have design abilities and wanna focus on the entrepreneurial aspect, and then do a minor in the other field. So maybe major in business management with a minor in fashion design or major in fashion design with a minor in finance or management. This would be a good way of using your time in college to develop both sides at the same time.
Another option is to join clubs or organizations that give you experience in this. Maybe join a theater club to help design the costumes, or a business organization to go to business competitions "Shark Tank" style.
Hope this helps with your question. Best of luck!
I'm not very knowledgeable about fashion but getting a degree in business (finance, marketing) would give you an opportunity to work in a broad range of industries. With a business degree you could apply for a position in a fashion company. If you like math, I would recommend finance. Marketing also involves knowing some math but not as much. Although both functions would play supporting roles in helping the fashion company to succeed, with finance you would probably be a little more in the back office and with marketing you would be a little closer "to the action". If you are able to take an intro course in each of the various fields (business and fashion), that would give you a general idea of what to expect in those fields. And ideally, if you can get an internship (either paid or unpaid) that would really give you a good feel for each industry.
