What words come into your head when you hear the phrase ‘studying business at university?’
Do you instantly picture a career where the salary is high and the perks are great? Or do you perhaps think of those young, precocious and dynamic CEOs and entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs (fun fact: neither of them actually studied business).
We’d be willing to bet that at least one of these thoughts or preconceptions has passed through the minds of some of your students too.
You could almost say there’s a romantic quality about studying a business-related degree. The study of business is one that lends itself to an image of success and instant employability. And this is often a perception that’s at least partially rooted in reality!
Perhaps that’s why business-related programmes and disciplines are so popular with so many international students, including the students who use our platform to make those crucial higher education decisions!
One of the great things about business-related degrees is that they encompass such a large and diverse family of other qualifications and specialisms. We couldn’t possibly list them all here, but a few notable examples include:
- Business and Management
- International Business
- Business and Marketing
- Accounting and Finance
- Human Resource Management
In the final instalment of our international careers series, we’ll explore business-related degrees and qualifications in a bit more detail and give you all the info you need to help those aspiring entrepreneurs and business-minded students at your school.
