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.

The words business and management are commonly associated with career success. There are so many great opportunities coming from these areas that the challenge is less about searching for something to do with a business management degree and more about narrowing down the choices. Whether you’re deciding what to study for your associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree, you’re looking for a master’s degree in the right field, or just thinking about what interests you have that could turn into a career someday, you’ll want to know what job options go along with a business management program. So what can you do with a business management degree? Let’s find out. What is a business management degree? Courses to expect. First things first—you need to find a good business school and get your degree before you can really dive into the career search. Business management programs vary from institution to institution, but there are some commonalities to look for.  The basics of business management start with a broad range of topics in finance, accounting, and marketing. Data is the key to making decisions and solving problems in business management, so you’ll be working with plenty of numbers. You’ll also spend a lot of time studying human interactions to build communication, managerial skills, and the ethics of making business decisions.  C.J. Trent-Gurbuz, writing for U.S. News and World Report, offered a summary of what kinds of courses you’ll be taking in this program. He said, “Subjects include business economics, statistics, accounting, marketing, management and organization, business communication, and entrepreneurship. Students then focus on coursework more aligned with their interests, or they may choose a concentration.”  When it comes to potential advanced classes, Trent-Gurbuz provided a list that speaks to the complexity of business management and how it reaches into many other areas. Possible course subjects include:  Operations management Management theory and practice Organizational behavior Entertainment entrepreneurship Investment in new ventures Possible concentrations within a business management major are also varied, including:  Information systems and technology  International business Leadership and management Law Finance Health and life sciences Strategy Real estate Trent-Gurbuz also noted, “Some programs allow business administration majors to pursue dual degrees in areas such as international relations, computer science, neuroscience or philosophy.” Business Management degree jobs to consider. Combining the benefits of a business degree and a management degree with training in diverse areas such as administration and organizational behavior as well as knowledge in specialized fields like healthcare administration, sports management, international business, and human resource management, a degree in business management makes a wealth of careers accessible.  Broadly speaking, it is a good time to be entering this industry. According to Ilana Kowarski in U.S. News and World Report, “The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment within management occupations will be 5% higher in 2029 than in 2019, which is faster than the 4% anticipated average job growth rate among all occupations during that time frame.”  Given that the number of openings in business management is large and continuing to grow, it’s important to know what about business management interests you and why it captures your attention. When you have the answer to those questions, you can then focus your studies and job search on the right areas. An unfocused, general search for jobs in business management could become overwhelming. Mary White in LovetoKnow.com offers an overview of larger areas into which business management careers can be grouped. They include: Management/supervision B2B sales Nonprofit leadership Event planning Project management Property management Human resources Medical practice management Entrepreneurship Healthcare management Kowarski got into more specific job titles within those larger areas. She said, “Experts say that a business management degree is a marketable credential for each of the following positions: Accountant Banker Business analyst (or business manager) Compensation specialist Executive Financial analyst Financial director (or financial manager) Human resources manager Investment banker Management consultant (or management analyst) Marketing analyst Marketing director (or marketing manager) Nonprofit manager Sales Manager Private equity analyst or associate Project manager Sales representative Talent acquisition specialist Venture capital analyst or associate Management analyst Market research analyst Vice president of finance Vice president of marketing.” This is by no means a comprehensive list, as opposed to the most common landing spots for those with a degree in business management. There are, of course, also important professional steps to take on the way to some of these careers. That should for sure include internships during a bachelor of business management degree program (or MBA program), where business students gain valuable experience and develop management skills. You should also expect to spend time in entry-level jobs, such as an administrative assistant or office manager, gaining further experience for your resume and practicing leadership.   What can you do with a master's degree in business management? As if there weren’t enough choices for a career after a bachelor’s degree in business management, going on to get your master’s degree only broadens the possibilities for your future in the industry.  Rhetta Standifer, associate professor of management at North Central College, said, “A master’s degree can help individuals in terms of possible promotion and higher salary opportunities over the course of their careers, depending on their goals and the industries they are in.” Depending on the opening, a master’s degree can make you stand out from other applicants when going for a manager or director position. Employers will value the added expertise and focused instruction you will receive from a graduate degree program from a business school. Standifer noted that employers often value these skills so much they will contribute to your efforts to get an advanced degree. She said, “Often, individuals will work for a bit before going back for their master’s. If that is the case, you should always check with your employer, because sometimes employers will help pay for the master’s degree if the employee consents to staying with the organization for a specified number of years.”  It may seem simple, but it’s important to know the distinction between a master’s degree in business management and a master of business administration degree or MBA. The MBA programs is popular and highly publicized by many schools. They can lead to similar, but not precisely the same opportunities as a degree program in business management.

The most important thing you will gain from a business management program is a versatile set of skills that can be applied in numerous different areas. That means with a business management degree, you might find yourself in an industry adjacent to or maybe even outside of business altogether and still be well-suited to the positions they hold. Kowarski said, “The breadth of skills cultivated via a business management degree tends to be highly beneficial in the long run, since it prepares someone to work within multiple divisions of a company and to collaborate with a variety of coworkers.  “Furthermore, in contrast to entrepreneurship programs that focus on how to start companies and expand start-ups, management programs tend to have a broader scope, business school faculty say. Management students typically learn how to lead organizations at various stages of their development, including both embryonic businesses and well-established corporations.” Business management degree programs give students the chance to make an immediate impact. Employers really value people who can do the job effectively without a lot of additional training or hand holding, and business management graduates tend to embody that trait. Later in her U.S. News piece, Kowarski said, “Jeff Hyman, the CEO of Recruit Rockstars–a Chicago-based executive recruiting company–says that an upside of obtaining a business management degree is that it provides the business savvy necessary to quickly perform well at a new job: ‘One of the key things that an employer is looking for is how long it takes for you to add value and contribute and, frankly, cover your cost.’” Standifer also pointed out how business management teaches overarching skills that apply to any working environment and make students universally marketable. She said, “It is, of course, important that our students learn as much as possible about their field of study – what makes a good manager? How does one become a good leader? But just as important for management students is the development of what I’ve referred to as the ‘soft’ skills – things like interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, working with others collaboratively, (and) understanding and building on one’s emotional intelligence skills.” Therefore, if you’re wondering to yourself, “Is a business management degree worth it?”, the answer is that it can provide you with not only lots of direct paths to great careers, it can make you the kind of candidate who can succeed in almost any job with the freedom to create your own opportunities. Compensation can be very favorable for most business management graduates, as well, so be sure to read more in our business management degree salary guide.

How to get a business management degree . To get a business management degree, you need to make a few key decisions. First and foremost, you need to decide what kind of educational experience you want. Will you attend school online, in person or through a combination of the two? There are advantages and drawbacks to both virtual and traditional classes, and one isn't inherently better than the other. Instead, pick the option that works best for you. After you’ve made that decision, you can start researching schools and their business management programs. Review the entry requirements and curriculum to see which would be a good fit for you and your goals. Check to see if these schools offer minor programs; specialties or concentration areas; or certificates. From there, apply to the schools that most interest you. After you get into a program and start business school, focus on your studies! If you want to succeed as a business professional, do your best to learn the material. Simply put, take advantage of all the knowledge and resources available to you during your time as a student. How long does it take to get a degree in business management? . Typically, it takes four years of full-time study to get a bachelor’s degree in business management. You may be able to move through a program more quickly if you take more than the minimum number of required classes each term or find alternative ways to earn class credit. Some business schools offer accelerated or condensed programs, which may be a good option if you want to complete your degree as quickly as possible. Conversely, it will take longer to get your degree if you go to school part time or take time off from your studies. If you do a double major, or add a minor or certificate to your program, you may spend more than four years completing your undergraduate degree. Keep in mind that program length can vary among schools; be sure to check the expected duration of your program when planning out your education. Further, you will need to spend an additional year or two going to school if you choose to pursue a master’s degree in business management. How to prepare for business school. If you want to reach your academic and professional goals as quickly as possible, it’s best to start preparing for your degree in advance. It doesn’t matter if you’re in high school or going back to school as a working adult; take some time to set yourself up for success. You can then devote your time to learning about the details of business management and focusing on your professional development. Here are a few ways you can begin prepping for your business management degree: Pick classes wisely: If you’re a career changer or working on your general education courses, select the classes within your program wisely. Look to see if the program includes courses related to business, such as economics, business math or personal finance. These classes will build up your knowledge base, introduce important business concepts and make it easier for you to step into your business management classes. Join professional organizations: Join relevant professional organizations in your community, including groups related to business and entrepreneurship. Also look into organizations that focus on other areas — such as debate and public speaking, community engagement and technology — to brush up on skills that are important in the business world. Again, this will lay a helpful foundation that better prepares you for college-level business courses — and help with networking too. Work with a mentor: Connect with an existing business professional or local entrepreneur. Ask them if they’d be willing to serve as a mentor and share their expertise with you on your educational and professional journey. Having the help, knowledge and expertise of someone who has already had this experience will be invaluable as you progress into college and then the workforce. Do an internship: If possible, sign up for an internship. Ideally, this internship would be related to business, but any kind of program will give you firsthand knowledge of how an organization works. If you’re working full time, conduct informational interviews with professionals in the industry you want to enter to learn more about what to expect and what you need to learn to succeed. Get a job: Similarly, try getting a job to learn more about the inner workings of an organization. If you can, find a position related to the kind of work you’d like to do in business management. However, an unrelated job is still a useful opportunity, as you will learn about the general flow of a workplace and your qualities as an employee. Research, research, research: Finally, do some research! Learn about business management, the industry and potential specializations. Take things a step further and look into specific programs, their curriculum, and their entry requirements. You don’t need to figure everything out before starting school, but you can benefit from having more knowledge. This will allow you to maximize the value of your time in school and focus more on your studies. Ultimately, a business management degree is what you make of it. It’s a broad and varied field, filled with possibility and opportunity. Once you get your degree, it’s up to you to figure out what to do with it.   Explore all your options before committing to one path. Here’s the scoop in business administration.

Human Resources Manager. A company’s most valuable asset will always be its human capital. Human resource managers are in charge of workforce administration, which starts at the recruitment level and continues through payroll, training, compliance, benefits, scheduling, retention, counseling, strategic planning and more.While the primary function of human resources specialists is to recruit, screen, interview and hire employees, most human resources specialists are trained in all HR functions, and therefore they frequently handle other human resources work, such as employee relations, compensation and benefits, and training. These daily tasks could include processing payroll and administering benefits, as well as ensuring all human resources functions are in compliance with federal, state and local regulations.For a very large Florida enterprise, such as Publix, effective management of human resources is crucial for success. This is a dynamic and competitive field that truly values specialization; large human resources departments will hire you based on your degree as a qualification, but you may be expected to complete additional training, particularly as it relates to workplace compliance.At the managerial level, the BLS reports the median annual wage at $110,120 and reports job opportunities for human resources specialists are projected to grow 5% between now and 2024.4. Sports Operations Manager. With median salaries of around $95K per year, sports management is an interesting position that many business administration students seek to pursue. Professional sports franchises, such as the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Panthers, are medium-sized employers that need sports management specialists for both their front and back offices. The NASCAR brand is also based in the Sunshine State and is looking to expand beyond the 13 racetracks it wholly owns and operates.Talent management firms, sports marketing agencies, school academics programs, and even municipalities often have positions that need to be filled by sports management professionals.FNU offers a sports management concentration with a minimum of 18 credits for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program.

Advertising Executive: You do not have to specialize in marketing or advertising to handle the accounts of clients who need promotional work; professionals with business degrees are often hired for this purpose and they can also oversee internal marketing efforts. Vendors of goods, for example, Rooms to Go furniture store, or Ikea, need to stay very visible and competitive to reach consumers and target the right advertising channels. This is something that calls for the organizational and analytical skills of business majors.Market Research Analyst: A market research analyst helps a company understand who their customers are, what products they should be selling, and how they can successfully promote those products.8 Market research analysts often design surveys and train and supervise interviewers who conduct the surveys. They then analyze the research and report the results to management. Market research analysts work for employers in a variety of industries and for consulting firms.9 According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for market research analysts are projected to grow by 19% between now and 20246. Municipal Manager. Modern cities are not managed merely by means of political action and development; they are entities that require a substantial amount of administration, and this is where managers of administrative services are particularly needed. Municipal administration departments tend to have a large concentration of business graduates because they need to be managed like a business. Bureaucracy will never cease to be the apparatus that keeps cities running and this is the case at the city, county, and federal levels.In a populous metropolitan region such as South Florida, municipal administration departments are always hiring.7. Franchising Manager. Miami is home to one of the largest fast-food franchising brands in the world: Burger King. The headquarters and regional offices of this company are efficiently managed by business administration professionals who make sure that operations run smoothly. The franchising operation alone requires significant management because it is essential to the continuous expansion of the brand. While it is true that Burger King managers and field operations supervisors come from their restaurants, administrative staff members come from college business programs. Other major franchise brands based in Florida include Checkers, Darden and Benihana.8. Business Developer / Business Consultant. When small business owners want to take that next step towards growth and expansion, they may either retain the services of a business development consultant or hire one as a director.Business developers formulate and apply strategies to help companies expand their commercial footprint; they may come up with new products and services, forge partnerships or enter new territories. For medium and enterprise-level companies, developers will typically need MBA degrees and report directly to executive boards.Business consultants also referred to as management consultants, help companies propose ways to improve a business’s efficiency. They advise managers on how to make an organization more profitable through reduced costs and increased revenue. Management consultants generally organize information about a problem and design a procedure for improvement, recommend new systems and organization changes, and confer with managers to ensure changes are working.The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates the employment of management consultants is projected to grow 14%, or much faster than average, by 2024.Starting Your Own Business.

Business management majors study topics such as general business principles, financial analysis, data analytics, organizational effectiveness, and strategic planning. The field offers jobs in finance, banking, and business administration, including positions at the executive and C-suite levels. This guide provides information about the various business management careers available to graduates of relevant accredited programs. Why Pursue a Career in Business Management? Enterprises and public-sector organizations continue to need capable professionals with business management degrees. From the perspectives of opportunity and earning potential, these degrees rank among the most versatile and valuable educational credentials a person can hold. Those well-suited to careers in business management share several distinct characteristics. Sound analytical and decision-making skills are crucial, helping good business managers make confident decisions based on available information. Commitment, integrity, creativity, and an enduring willingness to work hard also bode well for those working toward business administration and business management careers. Business Management Career Outlook. Graduates with a business management degree may qualify for many different careers and benefit from high levels of demand in virtually every industry. Business is a highly competitive field at the management and executive levels, but the sheer volume of opportunity offsets fierce competition for top jobs. Enterprises of all sizes and types need the expertise and leadership that strong, well-trained business managers provide. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that many management-related career paths will enjoy outstanding rates of growth in the coming years. For example, the BLS projects a 14% increase in management analyst positions between 2018 and 2028, which far outpaces the average projected growth for all occupations in the U.S. The following table offers further specifics, breaking down popular business management career paths by median earnings across a professional's career cycle.

While business management curricula vary by school and education level, many programs cover similar skills and concepts. Typically, business management students learn to supervise employees, direct an organization's operations, evaluate performance, and reach organizational goals. While learners develop these skills in school, they can also hone their abilities after graduation through professional training programs and certifications. Below are some key business management skills. Leadership Through programs in business administration and management, future managers develop the leadership skills they need to run departments and oversee teams. They study common leadership strategies and develop a unique leadership style. Business management programs teach students to set organizational goals, motivate teams, and manage change within a company. Decision-Making Business managers need sound decision-making skills in order to steer organizations in the right direction. Business students learn to analyze situations, factor in important data and information, and make strategic decisions. They also learn to consider the moral and ethical ramifications of decisions. Personnel Management Business management professionals, especially those who specialize in training and development, need to foster collaboration in the workplace. Business administration programs often cover strategies for supervising personnel, motivating employees, and assembling effective teams. Additionally, programs teach students the basics of human resource management and development. Analytical Skills Professionals in many business management careers must analyze situations and craft solutions. Marketing managers may need to develop strategies based on consumer trends, while information technology professionals must analyze technology issues. Business management programs help learners develop the problem-solving abilities necessary to approach a variety of business scenarios. Communication Skills Business management students learn to effectively convey ideas verbally and through visual presentations. Business administration programs often include courses on business writing and public speaking. Many business professionals meet individually with clients, participate in conference calls, and attend large meetings. Business Management Career Paths. Since business management is such a broad field, many students pursue a concentration aligned with their career goals. Earning a career-specific concentration can help graduates impress employers and land specialized positions.

Accumulating knowledge by gaining practical experience is probably the single best way to advance your career in business management. As the salary table in the preceding section notes, typical earnings rise dramatically in the later stages of a professional's working life. However, there are several other steps you can take if you want to accelerate your growth potential. These include pursuing continuing education courses and obtaining optional certifications from respected professional organizations and business schools. Networking and building personal relationships can also help you get ahead and advance your career. Certifications and/or Licensure. Of the many available careers for a business management major, few require formal licenses. Accounting paths represent one notable exception. Many types of accountants -- including certified public accountants and certified management accountants -- require licenses to practice their professions. More commonly, business management specialists elect to pursue optional certifications from professional organizations and other institutions. The CBM (certified business manager) designation offers a useful example. Offered through institutions with specialized accreditation, this certification signals elite operational management skills. Many MBA programs also build the CBM and/or other professional certifications into their curricula, enabling learners to save time and money while diversifying their academic qualifications. Continuing Education. Established business management professionals can advance their careers through continuing education in multiple ways. Two common options include upgrading your degree and completing an undergraduate or graduate certificate program. A degree upgrade most readily applies to those who hold bachelor's degrees but find themselves bumping up against the ceiling of their current career potential. In such cases, returning to school to get an MBA represents the clearest and most direct path to breaking the barriers to landing higher-paid and more prestigious positions with greater levels of responsibility. Certificate programs, sometimes configured as "professional programs," represent another alternative. They take less time to complete than degrees, and they also tend to cost a lot less money. Thus, these options may appeal to those who want to learn new skills and boost their academic qualifications without leaving their current positions. Increasingly, business schools offer part-time and online MBA programs that deliver similar benefits, delivering valuable flexibility that makes it possible to earn a marketable and upgraded degree without putting your career on hold. Next Steps. In addition to continuing education programs and optional certifications, emerging and established individuals can take advantage of professional organizations and other networking opportunities to advance themselves. Networking is crucial for career development in most business careers, and building your personal and professional networks is a good way to invest your time. Students may qualify for discounted or even free membership to business-oriented professional organizations. Examples of organizations that specialize in management-related fields include the American Management Association and the Association of Business Process Management Professionals International. How to Switch Your Career to Business Management. Switching your career to business management will likely necessitate a trip back to school unless you already possess a degree in business administration, management, finance, economics, or a similar area. Business is highly competitive by design, and professionals in management positions need authoritative credentials and specialized knowledge. If you already hold a four-year bachelor's degree but did not major in business, you can accelerate your transition by seeking out an MBA program that does not require an existing business degree. Many reputable business schools open their MBA tracks to applicants of all academic backgrounds. Otherwise, you can start your transition by obtaining a bachelor's degree in business management or business administration. Where Can You Work as a Business Management Professional? Industries. Nearly all industries need talented and skilled managers who can direct operations, supervise employees, and develop business strategies. Business management graduates find work in small and large enterprises in fields including healthcare, real estate, publishing, and banking. Additionally, organizations in the nonprofit and government sectors employ managers who can properly allocate funds, manage finances, and motivate employees. Generally, business management professionals with advanced degrees enjoy greater career flexibility. Management of Companies and Enterprises This broad industry encompasses professionals who direct operations in a variety of businesses. The responsibilities of business managers depend on the type of company they work for. Management Consulting Management consulting firms help client organizations improve efficiency and enhance management strategy. Managers in this field may meet with clients and lead teams of management analysts.

Nick Ducoff is the co-founder and CEO of Edmit, the SXSW EDU award-winning company helping families make smarter college financial decisions. Nick has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal, which described Edmit as "a website that predicts aid packages and provides advice on the value of different colleges." Previously, Nick was a vice president at Northeastern University, a founder/executive at two startups that were both acquired, and an attorney. He received his JD with honors from the University of Texas and his BBA from Emory University. Why did you decide to pursue a degree and a career in business management? Was it something you were always interested in? One of my grandparents was a businessman and another was a lawyer. I wasn't sure which I wanted to be, so I sought foundations in both. I applied to colleges with undergraduate business programs and planned to attend law school after graduating. What did your career path look like after graduating? How did you end up where you are now? I attended law school after college but found law school wasn't really for me. The dean of the law school (Bill Powers, who became president of the University of Texas at Austin) and my dad encouraged me to stick it out, which I'm glad I did. I graduated with honors and then practiced law at a big firm, where I was able to marry my interests in business and law, working with startups and venture capital firms. I got the entrepreneurial bug and left a very lucrative and rewarding law firm to start my first company. That company was acquired, as was another startup I did after that. I was recruited to lead new ventures at Northeastern University, where I started the first university coding bootcamp in data analytics. I saw how students struggled to understand how to evaluate the return on investment of their education, so after three and a half years as vice president at Northeastern, I started another company, which I'm now the CEO of, called Edmit. This company helps families make smarter college choices. What are some of the most rewarding aspects of your work? And challenging? I love making a positive impact on people's lives, so the past seven years in higher education have been very rewarding. One customer recently said, "You gave me a lot of hope and confidence for my current financial dilemma." We hear feedback like that every day, which is awesome. The work is also very challenging, but if it wasn't, it wouldn't be as much fun. What advice would you give to students considering a career in business management? According to the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown University, business majors are among the highest paying, leading to average annual wages of $37,000 or more at the entry level and an average of $65,000 or more annually over the course of a career. Obviously, money isn't the only reason to choose a major, but if career earnings are important to you, business, STEM, or health majors might be a good choice. A business major is also very versatile. What would you say are some of the most important skills required to work in a business management position? The concrete skills you'll get from a business degree, such as accounting or finance, might not be as important as the soft skills you'll pick up from your group projects, such as negotiation, time management, and teamwork, according to an article by Monster. Any last thoughts for us? When you're ready to start your first company or if you're looking for a job at a startup, look me up and I'd be happy to help! Resources for Business Management Majors.

While you are not required to have a management title to qualify for a CM certification program, you will have to have work experience before applying. You will also be required to participate in a 90-hour prep program and successfully pass three separate exams. The CM certification verifies that you have the ability to manage and lead with a level of competency, and it is a good distinction to have on your resume as you seek career advancement opportunities.12 Professionals can also earn a Certified Business Administration (CBA) through the American Certification Institute. Candidates receive this certification by demonstrating their understanding of the fundamentals of office administration and business management by successfully completing four modules of coursework and passing an exam. The CBA certification verifies that you have the ability to successfully take on challenges in office administration and business management, and is a desirable trait for employment with large multinational conglomerates.20 Finally, many business administration students enter professions where core responsibilities may include project management.

A PMP is not industry-specific, and it validates your expertise in running any kind of project. To become a PMP, a candidate must have 35 hours of PMP training, and assuming you have a bachelor’s degree, 4,500 hours of project management experience. He or she must also pass an exam. A PMP is the most recognized project management certification, and to date, there are approximately 730,000 active PMPs worldwide.21 With a career in business administration, organized and motivated managers can help keep key aspects of a business running efficiently and profitably.

This article will provide a practical outline of everything you need to know about different types of management degrees, possible industries to work in post-graduation, and different types of positions typically earned by business management professionals.   Why Get a Business Management Degree? Are There Different Management Degrees? Business Management Degree Jobs  Management Degree Salary: Average Range Get Started With Your Business Management Degree Why Get a Business Management Degree? Earning a business management degree can turn a team member into a team leader. The unique thing about business management is that the skills that come along with the degree are advantageous in every kind of workplace. Even for a seasoned employee, this degree can help take their career to the next level. A thorough understanding of leadership tactics can also help a newly hired individual better integrate into a collaborative work environment. These skills would be desirable in a new candidate because of their potential for future promotion. In addition, the median annual wage for all management occupations in 2017 was $102,590 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), which was the highest wage out of all the major occupational groups listed on the BLS website. Investing in a business management degree can offer you a variety of job opportunities, career advancement, and even higher salaries. Are There Different Management Degrees? Professional management is a field that has quite a large scope. Just as there are many different things a management degree can be used for, there are many different types of management degrees with distinctive functions and requirements. Bachelor of Science in Business Management. A Bachelor of Science in Management is typically earned through a traditional four-year undergraduate program, such as GMercyU’s Management degree. Management programs will begin with basic courses such as economics and accounting, as they are the central building blocks of business education and are essential for success in a professional business setting. From there, the program will move towards a more complete understanding of professional business practices. A management major will take courses on business law, finance, operations, and international business. These higher-level courses shift focus from necessary core skills to more specified and practical aspects of the major.  Many business management programs also offer degree concentrations that give undergraduates students the opportunity to see what specific kind of management is right for them. Typically, these classes could be offered on subjects like management in small business or sports management. By the end of the four-year program, undergraduates will have a thorough understanding of business management and the industries to which it can be applied.  Master’s in Management . A master’s degree in management is a graduate degree. After earning a bachelor’s degree, typically one or two more years of education are necessary to earn this specialized degree. Graduate students will be able to explore management as it relates to a wider range of specific industries, and they are given the chance to delve further into the economic aspects of their field of study. Career managers going back to school for more qualifications may take courses surrounding leadership techniques and business law to help them become more well-rounded executives. Students with less professional experience can use their graduate schooling to explore courses about certain industries that were not available to undergraduates.  This type of advanced management degree, like many graduate degrees, can result in substantially higher yearly earnings. Individuals in management positions can potentially see an increase of just under twenty percent in their annual salary. Two more years of education may seem like a large investment, but you gain skills and techniques that can be applied to the workplace right away.  Doctorate in Management. There are two options when it comes to a management doctorate degree. One is a Doctor of Philosophy degree in management. This degree option focuses on the theories of management and performing new research projects to explore those theories. The second option would be a Doctorate in Management. Similarly, this degree has to do with furthering the progress of management study while also incorporating theory application.  Individuals with this top-level degree have the potential to substantially increase their salary. The percentage or amount of increase depends on what kind of upper-level executive position they earn and the industry they are working in. In addition, a doctoral degree offers the opportunity to become a college-level educator. Postsecondary educators have the ability to conduct research using university-affiliated facilities, and they can make an annual yearly salary of around $80,000 per year, but this is subject to vary based on institution. *Source  Business Management Degree Jobs. You might be thinking, “What jobs can you get with a business management degree?” One of the degree’s greatest attributes is its versatility and variety of job opportunities. Below you can find a list of common fields you can utilize with a business management degree. Entrepreneurship . Entrepreneurs work for themselves, trying to build businesses from the ground up based on profitable ideas. If the idea is not cost-effective or have enough demand, an entrepreneur must analyze that beforehand, and move on to the next business plan. If the idea is deemed profitable, an entrepreneur is then tasked with building a team to help bring their plan to fruition. This is where the management side comes in. They must learn to push their group to work at maximum efficiency while keeping them at ease during the stressful beginning stages of starting a business. Pinning down an exact salary expectation for an entrepreneur is a bit more in-depth than one might think. If an entrepreneur is successful in carrying out their plan, they would be a top executive at the business entity that they have created. As of 2017, the median annual salary of a top executive was $104,700. Another thing that’s important to take into account is that entrepreneurship is a very competitive industry and requires commitment. *Source Executive. Executives lead their teams to reach certain company goals and consult with colleagues about how to better run their organization. Executives use their business management knowledge to analyze reports on the company’s performance and think of practical ways to improve. They may also be responsible for hiring new talent to improve workplace efficiency, or an executive may have to find ways to make financial or personnel cuts for the same reason. Essentially, executives build and lead a team while analyzing and improving their company’s economic standing. The expected annual salary for an executive would be $104,700, which is the same as that of an entrepreneur, but remember there are some differences. The biggest being there is more stability working as a company executive, which leads to more competition in the job market. *Source General Management. Entrepreneurs and executives divert a lot of their focus toward future planning and big picture details while a general manager is someone who is in charge of the practical tasks necessary to run a company day to day. An executive may make company goals, but a general manager ensures that employees are working efficiently toward those goals. They may be tasked with doling out responsibilities for certain projects and creating work schedules that allow teams to complete these projects.  According to PayScale, general managers have an average median annual salary that falls around $62,000. Of course, the average annual salary depends on the employer and the specific industry that employer is affiliated with. *Source Human Resources. Human resource managers are integral to any kind of business organization. They are the link between top executives and employees and they work hard to make offices run smoothly. When the company decides to hire new talent, the human resources branch is tasked with screening, interviewing, and onboarding new workers. This would all be overseen by the human resources manager.   As of 2017, the median annual wage for human resource managers was $110,120. This is substantially higher than the average annual income, and it even eclipses that of a top executive. Keep in mind that the level of competition for a job like this is high, but a high education level can help a candidate to stand out. *Source Retail. As a retail manager, you would likely be responsible for the running of a retail establishment. A retail manager could be tasked with staffing the store, ensuring that the hired staff is working efficiently, and generally making sure that the store is performing to the best of its ability. Obviously, the size of the establishment would have a lot to do with the span of a retail manager’s responsibilities. A business management degree would set a candidate apart from others because, in some instances, a bachelor’s degree may not be required for this position. According to PayScale, the average median income among retail managers was $46,000. Even though this is less than other management positions, this career option may not require the same investment in secondary education. It’s also important to note that experience is important in this line of work, and a business management degree may make a candidate a better applicant for future higher-level management jobs. *Source  Sales. A sales manager is more of an executive position and is tasked with efficiently directing sales teams. Sales managers analyze economic data on their products to improve sales and maximize profits. These executives are also responsible for strategically acquiring new customers for their company and setting sales quotas to motivate their employees. It is a full-time job that often requires travel and extended hours. The demanding nature of the occupation is easy to see in a median annual salary of $121,060. The salary size is a result of commissions and bonuses, which sales managers receive a percentage of their sales and performance. In that case, if you excel in the sales field, higher performance will equal higher pay.   *Source Management Salary Degree: Average Range. The average salary with a business management degree is just over $73,000 per year. That is much higher than the most recent statistic for the average annual wage for all U.S. occupations, which was $50,620 in 2017. An annual salary of $73,000 per year is subject to vary based on industry, employer, years of experience, and the type of business management degree earned. For example, the average yearly salary for someone with a bachelor’s degree in business management is $60,000, $75,000 with a master’s degree, and $122,000 with a doctorate degree in business management. *Source *Source *Source  Get Started with Your Business Management Degree.

If your school offers computer technology classes make sure you enroll, as these skills will be integral through college and into your career. Graduate: A completed, four-year bachelor's degree in business administration or a related business field will prepare you for graduate school. GRE and GMAT: The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is not required for admission to degree programs in the U.S. However, you may submit a score for review with your admission materials. What accreditation is there for my program? Accreditation shows that an institution or program meets standards of quality set forth by an accrediting agency, and that it is committed not only to meet those standards but to continuously seek ways in which to improve the quality of education and training provided. There are two types of educational accreditation: institutional and specialized. The three main specialized accreditors for business administration degree programs include: The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB): AACSB International accredits degree programs in business administration and accounting at bachelor's, master's and doctorate levels Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP): ACBSP accredits business, accounting and business-related programs at the associate, bachelors, masters and doctorate degree levels world International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE): The IACBE accredits business programs that lead to associate, bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees. It does not accredit institutions that only offer associate degrees in business Institutional accreditation is provided by regional and national associations of schools and colleges, such as The Higher Learning Commission. Institutional accreditation is provided by regional and national associations of schools and colleges. There are six regional associations, each named after the region in which it operates (Middle States, New England, North Central, Northwest, Southern, Western). Learn more about accreditation. Attending an accredited school may allow you to apply for financial aid, whether the school you select is a traditional classroom or online program. What should expect my student-teacher ratio to be? Students in undergraduate business administration programs will find a higher student-teacher ratio as many preparatory classes are often lecture-oriented and you can expect class size to be larger. As a rule, the further you progress in your education and field of specialty the smaller you should expect the ratio to become. The ideal student-teacher ratio is around 14:1 according to U.S. News & World Report's Best Schools survey. Online Programs. One classic criticism of online programs is that you're isolated from your teachers and classmates, but the opposite is often true. You may actually interact more with instructors and peers in online discussions, social media venues, and emails, than in a traditional classroom setting. The National Center for Education Statistics ranks the top 64 online universities on a number of factors, including student-teacher ratio. They found a range of 7:1–94:1 for their top 64 not-for-profit and for-profit schools. Now that you've got the facts on business administration degrees, it's time to make the first move toward the business career that's calling you. Discover the program that's just right for you.
