Making a Business Degree Fit Your Career of Choice


By Staff Writer Published on July 7, 2017

There are some degrees that a student can graduate with and be fairly confident of finding gainful employment—and a bachelor’s or master’s degree in business administration may be one of them.

A person with a degree in business administration can market themselves to potential employers as a quality employee because of the education, skills, and knowledge that they have received from their business administration courses. This almost universal appeal of an employee with a business degree is largely due to the fact that their education is transferable to almost any industry.

Business Degree = Versatility

Business students study economics, office administration, leadership, human resources, accounting, sales, computer science, and business organization. These skills and the knowledge that business students obtain in these disciplines make almost every business student a valuable resource for any company in any industry.

The universality of the business degree is made possible because of the global economy and the way in which most organizations operate.  No matter how you look at it, every organization—no matter what industry—needs savvy business professionals in order to function properly and obtain success.

For example, look at the versatility of business degrees put to use in hospitals. When most people think of hospitals, their mind conjures images of doctors in white and nurses in scrubs, but few think of the many business-educated professionals who work within a hospital’s administrative staff.

Hospitals, along with organizations from across the panorama of industries, need to hire business professionals to ensure that their operations run smoothly.  More often than not, there are needs within an organization that will require a person with a business background to fulfill.

But not only are business graduates desired by companies and organizations for their direct business education, they also desire them because business students come armed with a broad base of knowledge. As stated before, business students receive an education and training in a vast array of disciplines that allow future employers to mold them into the specialized employee that they are looking for.
