You can use your business entrepreneurship degree to get a job. Read on to find a list of jobs where your entrepreneurship degree can be useful.So, you studied entrepreneurship and got the major. Congratulations! But maybe you don’t want to start your own company after all, or at least not quite yet. Don’t fret. All that studying and training you spent on learning about entrepreneurship is not wasted. You may just be surprised at how many options you really have out there. There are many other options and very few limitations. Rather than simply focusing on the “entrepreneurial” aspect of your degree, consider all that you learned to get that degree. Most likely there were courses that covered creativity, innovation, ethics, marketing, finance and a wide variety of other topics. Focus on those skills and concepts and see where you can use them in the Fortune 50 job world. This is only a small snapshot of what you can do with an entrepreneurial degree. All of these places will help you gain valuable insight and hands-on experience that can either be used to further your career working for someone else, or help you become a more effective leader, should you decide to go out on your own. 1. Mid-level Management for an Entrepreneurship Degree Holder. At big companies, the C-level folks develop ideas, the ground force does the work and mid-level management converts the idea into execution. Graduates with entrepreneurial degrees are well-suited for this opportunity. 2. Business Consultant. The Fortune 500 is ripe with business consultants. They need people who can go to a client site, identify problems and fix them. That is what an entrepreneur does, and that is why this job is perfect for you. You have the training to help identify things that others may not pick up on and the training to know how to fix them. 3. Sales. Someone who works in sales or runs the department needs to know how businesses run. They need to know how to represent a company, manage accounts and follow up on leads.  4. Research and Development. To work in R&D, you need to understand business concepts, procedures and practices. With all of the training and education someone has received learning about entrepreneurship, they are well prepared for this type of position. 5. Not-for-Profit Fundraiser. Being able to raise funds requires understanding the importance of business and networking relationships. It is a great place for someone with this type of degree because you will have experience in studying advanced concepts that can be used to your advantage on the job. 6. Teacher. Now here me out on this one. I am not suggesting that you go teach entrepreneurship. I suggest you teach a core competency (e.g., math, history, literature, etc.), but teach students the entrepreneurial side. Teach them the benefits of math to business, history to innovation, and literature to persuasive advertising. 7. Recruiter. Having had courses that cover operations management, leadership and a variety of others, you most likely have a keen sense of what type of person is needed to fulfill a position. Companies who use recruiters rely upon someone being not just people savvy, but having an in-depth business sense as well. 8. Business Reporter. If you can write articles, or pick up a quick class to learn it, you are in a prime position to take the lead on covering a local business beat. You will understand the field and concepts and can use your knowledge to make the business section that much more interesting and telling.

You should think about the career paths and job titles you are most interested in and then research the majors preferred by employers for those specific roles.Work-life balance: Maintaining a healthy work-life balance that makes you happy is important. Certain careers, such as positions in upper-level management, may require you to devote more time to your work than what other careers require.

                            [body] => The Basics of Business Majors College Board March 2, 2018 A degree in one of the many available business majors can offer limitless opportunities. You’ll be prepared to work in a variety of settings in business, government, nonprofit organizations and more. Whatever your interests, a major in one of the following areas will give you the knowledge and skills to work in a setting or industry that is right for you. Accounting. Accounting is more than just bookkeeping — it’s learning how to report the financial activities of a business or an individual and discovering how to make sense of the numbers. Accountants learn the language of money, and they often translate that knowledge to provide their business partners or clients with valuable information. Though you can work in this field with a bachelor’s degree, to become a certified public accountant, you’ll have to pass a specialized test. And most states require extra college credits before you can take the test. Read more... Finance. Finance majors also interpret financial data. They often use their skills to help companies, nonprofits or individuals plan for the future. Whether they’re creating budgets or planning investments, those in finance need strong math skills. If you want to work in this field as a stockbroker, you’ll need to get some professional experience and pass specialized tests. Read more... Business Management and Administration. Business managers, administrators and owners are the people who keep businesses on track. Whether they’re operating a small business or a major corporation, the same skills apply. Students majoring in this area will learn to do tasks such as the following: Analyze a business’s strengths and weaknesses Figure out the best way to make a profit Steer companies through difficult situations Read more... Marketing. Having a good product doesn't guarantee a successful business. Marketing can make the difference between a company’s success or failure. Marketing professionals figure out things like the following: How to price products Where to sell goods How to advertise and promote products The right marketing plan ensures that businesspeople make the most profit from their products. And it helps consumers find what they want at the price they need. Read more... Sales. Sales and distribution is related to marketing, but the two areas have differences. Sales programs cover topics like these: Selling skills Entrepreneurship Business economics Two-year colleges often offer associate degrees in sales. Read more... International Business. A business practice that works well in one country can be disastrous in another. For example, when KFC expanded into China, the company accidentally translated its “finger lickin’ good” slogan to “Eat your fingers off.” It was a problem KFC could have avoided. Whether a company is trying to sell products overseas or producing them there, international business knowledge is essential. If you major in this area, you’ll explore questions of how to do business across borders. Read more... The Road to an MBA. After earning a bachelor’s degree, some students choose to obtain a master’s degree in business administration, or MBA. An undergraduate major in an area of business can be good preparation for the MBA and may allow you to complete the program quickly. But any major can help you develop the skills you’ll need in business school. You just need to make sure you meet the requirements for the MBA programs you’re interested in. These requirements may include computer skills and calculus. To get into an MBA program, you’ll need to pass the GMAT, a business-school admission test. Some business schools stress having work experience and will only consider applicants who have worked full- time. More Information. You can learn more about these majors and other business majors on this website.

                            [body] => Majoring in Business: What to Expect as a Business Major A degree may open the door to a variety of opportunities and diverse career paths. The degree programs offered at AIU will not necessarily lead to the featured careers. This collection of articles is intended to help inform and guide you through the process of determining which level of degree and types of certifications align with your desired career path. Pursuing a business degree may help open up a range of career paths and job opportunities. In fact, business degrees accounted for over 19% of all bachelor degrees awarded in 2014 – 2015, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.1 One reason students may choose a business major is the relative versatility the degree can offer, potentially preparing graduates for a variety of positions in a number of careers. While the broadness and flexibility of a business degree are often seen as a positive, it may also make it difficult to know exactly what to expect from a degree program. So what does majoring in business entail? What are your options as a business major? And what kinds of career paths can a business degree help make available? Is a Business Degree Right for You? If you're wondering whether business is a good major for you, you may first want to think about what skills and experience you hope to get out of your degree program. Generally, business degrees are designed to help students prepare for a wide range of positions and industries by introducing them to the fundamental aspects of business knowledge in accounting, finance, international business, marketing, human resources, operations and project management. Students in a business program may spend time learning how companies of all types function, as well as how a business operates within local and global economies. Because the skills and knowledge studied during a business degree program are intended to be applied to a number of different industries and types of companies, courses may cover everything from business management theories to marketing or even financial management. Core business courses may include: Principles of Accounting Introduction to Business Legal and Ethical Environment of Business Principles of Marketing In addition to getting broad exposure to many different aspects of working in business administration, a business degree program may provide opportunities through an institution’s career services department. For example, career services resources at AIU offer help with job search strategies, interview preparation, resume writing, and transitioning from the military to the civilian workforce. Networking and building future professional relationships through alumni services can also be a valuable part of a business major's experience after earning a degree. Different Areas of Study Within a Business Degree . Business degrees are commonly offered at three levels. An Associate of Arts in Business Administration typically takes the least time to complete and can help students develop the basic skills and knowledge upon which to build when pursuing a bachelor's degree. An associate’s degree may be an excellent choice for those looking for an introduction to key business concepts and some standard skills including critical thinking and communication that are essential for a modern business professional. Students may also choose a specialization corresponding to the particular aspect of business or role within a company they hope to pursue upon entering the job market. BBA specializations may include: Forensic Accounting Accounting Entrepreneurship Fashion Marketing Finance Healthcare Management Human Resource Management Management Marketing Operations Management Project Management Le Cordon Bleu Hospitality Management Technology Management Those looking to pursue upper-level management or executive positions can choose to build on their bachelor's degree (and sometimes years of experience) by pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. As with a bachelor's program, an MBA degree offers students a choice of specializations to most closely fit their professional goals and experience. MBA specializations can overlap with many of the BBA specializations, though institutions, such as American InterContinental University (AIU) also offer an international business specialization at the master's level. Core business courses at the MBA level may include: Global Financial Management Business Research for Decision Making Managerial Approach to Marketing Strategic Management Careers for Business Majors. A business degree can offer graduates a significant level of versatility on the job market. Business majors may find job opportunities in a number of different industries in both the public and private sector.

It is quite a testament to her that 18 years later people still remembered her as a fine teacher, amiable colleague, and tremendous person. She initially came to HPU with professional experience with the Big Four firm, Price Waterhouse (PwC), and business acumen gained working with other iconic companies. During her time away from HPU, she enhanced her professional and academic credentials by becoming a seasoned business faculty member, administrator, national director of a large non-profit organization, and a PhD.   With a combination of scholarly and corporate experience and a passion for developing leaders, Dr. Butler has earned a reputation as an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and inspiring professor. Prior to rejoining the PSB, she was a full-time management instructor at Elon University. Her teaching engages students, and her teaching philosophy promotes experiential learning, professional partnerships, leader development, ethics and social responsibility, intercultural competence, and global awareness. Dr. Butler also previously served at Bennett College as Assistant Professor of Business and Diversity and the first Executive Director of Entrepreneurship. At Bennett she taught various business courses, created an academic minor, established and directed the Entrepreneurship Institute for Young Women, developed a regional championship-winning Students in Free Enterprise competition team, and led students on business and leadership trips nationally and internationally.   For the Phillips School of Business, Dr. Butler teaches Principles of Management and Organizational Behavior, Leadership, and Work Teams in Organizations. She has taught a myriad of undergraduate and graduate business and management courses over her career. Her interests also include executive leader development, women’s leadership, management diversity, and management consulting.   Dr. Butler is a talented public speaker with several professional and academic affiliations and honors.

He currently teaches courses in Global Supply Chain / Operations Management and Strategic Management on the graduate and undergraduate levels. His teaching methodologies include simulations and other applied techniques where students learn through real-world scenarios. He couples the practical with the scholarly. Dr. Little requires his MBA students to write a publishable academic paper for the operations class which has led to four student papers being published and presented at academic conferences with the student as the sole author.   HPU alumnus Christoffer Riis Jensen explained the impact Dr. Little's MBA class had on him when he wrote, “I have had many great and inspirational professors at HPU. If I had to choose the most influential one, it would have to be Dr. David Little. He taught me how to create business plans, and how to analyze the market. He also gave the assignment of coming up with a new type of business. In other words, he taught me how to become entrepreneurial.”   Dr. Little’s recent publications include:   • Business Model Flowchart, Proceedings of the Global Economics, Finance, and Management Conference, June 2011. (peer reviewed) • The ‘Home Team’ Approach to Service Quality: Linking and Leveraging Communications Between Human Resources, Operations and Marketing, Journal of Organizational Culture, Communications and Conflict, January 2010. (peer-reviewed) • Looking for a Reason: Escalation in New Product Development, Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship, January 2009. (peer-reviewed)   HPU has tapped Dr. Little to serve on the Professional Growth Committee, the Assurance of Learning Committee, the Interdisciplinary Studies Committee, and the Graduate Council. The Phillips School of Business academic program benefits from Dr. Little’s involvement as Chair of the Curriculum Committee and as a member of the Assurance of Learning Evaluation Committee.   The Earl N. Phillips School of Business was pleased to learn of the generosity of the Parr family who made a donation to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education in Dr. Little's honor.   Dr. Little earned his Ph.D. in Organization and Management from Capella University, his MBA from Western Carolina University, and his B.S. from the United States Military Academy, West Point.

The PSB had been interested in hiring him for years, so his acceptance of the position was a reason for celebration. Dr. Stoutner was an undergraduate major in music who trained to be an opera singer, so like any successful musician he learned early on how to be entrepreneurial, how to manage his time and resources, and how to be highly disciplined. Shifting to the academic field of management for his advanced degrees was a logical progression for him.   Dr. Stoutner’s research interests lie in roles, risk evaluation/behavior, group and team effectiveness, and gamification of work. He is currently working on several research projects that explore historical trends in leadership. The first project looks at the history of the U.S. public radio industry and its leaders’ responses to discontinuous change. Specifically, he is studying how leaders within that industry make sense of the artifacts they have come to know and understand, and how that sense-making may influence their perception of disconfirmatory new information. Another project explores warhorse valuation during the reign of King Edward the First. Edward was involved in military conflicts during much of his reign. Dr. Stoutner is studying how those conflicts may have influenced warhorse supply and valuation. On a more modern level, he is doing research that clarifies the role of gamification (introducing game elements or game design principles in the workplace) in intrinsic motivation.   During his academic career, Dr. Stoutner has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels teaching Business Ethics and Leadership Development; Leadership, Management, and Organizational Behavior; Introduction to HR Management; Organizational Development and Change; HR Management; and Positive Group and Organizational Development.

A business degree is a great way to develop many of the transferable skills needed for working in a business environment. There are a number of business degrees which you can undertake, one of the most common of which is an undergraduate business studies degree. Often a business studies degree will cover subjects such as accounting, finance, management and, increasingly, entrepreneurship. This wide range of subjects reflects the multidisciplinary nature of business, and the importance of understanding all the key elements needed to make a business successful. If you’re looking for a degree which specializes more in a particular aspect of the business world (e.g. economics or marketing), consider taking a dedicated program in that area, or a joint honors degree (e.g. Business & Economics). The advantage of a joint degree is that you acquire general business skills along with more specialized ones, leaving you well placed when it comes to applying for graduate jobs. What can you do with a business degree? Corporate business careers are available in pretty much every sector you can think of; all industries need strong leaders, managers, financial advisors and market-savvy decision-makers. For many business graduates, however, the traditional pathways still hold a strong appeal – including careers in the banking and financial sectors, consultancy, human resources and marketing roles. If a straightforward corporate career is failing to get you excited, then a business program can also give you the skills to create your own business, or to take on business and management roles within more creative industries, be that fashion, media, or even the charity sector. The good thing about a business studies qualification is that it can lead to many entry-level roles upon graduation, while still allowing those who wish to specialize further the chance to improve their return on investment with a graduate degree. Examples of postgraduate programs include Masters in Management, Masters in Finance and (for those who’ve gained some professional experience) the Masters in Business Administration (MBA). Typical careers with a business degree. Don’t assume that studying business is a one-way route into business leadership and management roles – while this is a common path, business careers span multiple industries. Good business and management skills are key elements of any profitable company, and therefore effective leaders, strategic thinkers and financial experts are all in great demand. Big or small, global or local, companies all over the world are looking for business graduates like you. Business careers in accounting and finance. Generalized business studies degrees will usually cover aspects of accountancy and finance, however, if you wish to pursue a career in accounting or finance, you’ll usually need to gain further qualifications. A good option for business graduates is to apply for a graduate role and complete a specialized qualification while you work. In many larger companies, the course costs will be covered by the employer. If you decide to go into accounting or finance, your job may involve reviewing your company’s financial situation both past and present; advising clients and colleagues on tax and expenditure; managing records and business transactions; playing a role in mergers and acquisitions; and taking responsibility for preventing bad practice as well as fraud and negligence. For more advice on prospective careers and specializations in accounting and finance, view our individual accounting and finance subject guides. Business careers in management. Becoming a manager is a tough job, with long hours and heavy responsibilities. The upside is that managerial roles are known for being higher-paid, as well as boasting many opportunities for career progression or even a career U-turn. Managers can be found across all industries and fields, and their job is to provide structure and strategy to a workplace. Because of the responsibility of such positions, it’s unlikely you’ll find a managerial role without first gaining a further degree or a number of years of mid-level work experience. Despite this, business graduates are well-placed to become managers later on in life, and with determination and steady career progression an additional degree may not be necessary. Business careers in consultancy. Another option which may appeal is the field of business consultancy. This means working as part of a team, combining your business expertise and analytical skills in order to provide advice to other companies, usually focusing on how to optimize a specific project or part of the business. Projects and clients may vary widely, ensuring plenty of fresh challenges to get to grips with. Or you may specialize in a particular type of business, combining your business knowledge with a second field of interest, such as engineering or logistics. Business careers in retail and sales. There’s much more to retail and sales than shelf-stacking and cold-calling, especially if you’re armed with a business degree. Opportunities within sales and retail are numerous, including shop-based and office-based roles, as well as travelling positions for which a good knowledge of global markets is a must. For those looking to rise to the higher levels of retail and sales careers, large companies often offer the chance to undertake a graduate training program or trainee management program, in order to fast-track your position within the company. This can be highly valuable in gaining on-the-job experience, while continuing to develop your business and management skills in a commercial world. Other common graduate careers with a business degree include roles within auditing, banking, communications, distribution, energy and utilities, hospitality and leisure, IT, insurance, journalism, law, logistics, manufacturing, media administration, production management, public relations, the public sector and defense, risk management and tax. Less typical careers with a business degree. What can you do with a business degree without following the typical routes? Well, you can do rather a lot. Roles requiring business acumen and analytical thinking are innumerable, and your choice of which industry to head into is likely to be based on personal interests. It’s a cliché, but true – if you work for a company, product or service you truly believe in, you’re likely to be more motivated and effective in your role and progress more rapidly. Business careers in media. Although business studies degrees may not seem like the most creative of pathways, they can in fact lead to many roles within creative industries. Media is one such widespread industry, an umbrella term covering TV, film, online, newspaper and magazine publishing, events and more. While you’re unlikely to be directly involved in creative tasks such as writing, video editing or animation production, you’ll need a solid understanding of the media sector within which you’re working. Business careers in media include roles in sales, human resources, PR, finance and accounting, operations, marketing and branding, as well as overall management and strategic direction. Business careers in marketing and advertising. Opportunities in marketing and advertising are numerous for business graduates, particularly for those with a bit of creative flair. In these industries, business graduates can use the analysis and report-writing skills honed during their degree in order to conduct market research, develop marketing strategies, manage client relationships, liaise with copywriters, designers and printers, analyze markets and evaluate campaign results. You’re likely to be working alongside specialists such as designers, video producers and copywriters, and will need to continually broaden your own skillset to keep pace with changes in technology and market trends. Business careers in human resources. Business doesn’t have to be a dog-eat-dog world, and careers within human resources offer roles which require both business acumen and highly honed interpersonal skills. Recruitment, training and pay are all areas handled by the HR department. Great communication skills are essential, but you’ll also be expected to have a good basic understanding of business operations and management as well as detailed and up-to-date knowledge of employment laws and company regulations. --- This article was originally published in December 2014 and most recently updated in December 2019. ‘What Can You Do With a Business Degree?’ is part of our ‘What Can You Do With…’ series. We have also covered art, biology, communications, computer science, English, engineering, fashion, finance, history, geography, law, marketing, mathematics, performing arts, philosophy, politics, psychology, sociology, chemistry, economics and physics.
