Business and Management is the study of systems where goods and services are provided in exchange for something of value. A Degree in Business and Management is designed to give you an understanding of business models: how they function, how to run them on daily basis and how to possibly expand them in the future.
If you choose to study Business and Management, you will need to have good analytical and problem solving skills as you will be expected to observe patterns in business reports. You will also need to be able to work with other people, both as leader and team player. You will find yourself constantly be among people – whether they are your customers or clients, partners or bosses – hence, you must be capable of expressing yourself clearly, and at times, persuasively.
‘’you may also apply your skills in corporate communications, human resource, logistics, management consulting, market research, real estate, telecommunications, media and advertising’’
A Degree in Business and Management will not only prepare you for a career in banking and financial planning, but it also exposes you to many areas of businesses. You will also be able to develop your knowledge in the field by obtaining a Professional Qualification pertaining to your specialisation (e.g. ACCA for accountants and CFA for investment analyst). The most popular path to obtain your Professional Qualification part-time whilst working full time as a Degree holder. Many business schools also offer internationally recognised Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) that focuses on skills required for careers in business and management. Most MBAs require relevant working experience.
Depending on your major, you will have the required knowledge and skills to enter any of these business fields. Some Degree in Business and Management allows you to take a complementary major in another field of Business.
There are several pathways towards a Business Degree after your Secondary Education. You can choose to pursue a Pre-University course, a Foundation in Business or Arts in your chosen university or a Diploma. Upon completion of any of those qualification, you will then be eligible to pursue a Degree in Business and Management.
