The world of business doesn’t stop, and opportunities continue to expand and grow. But the right school and education is crucial in order to give you an edge in the workforce.
Students of Daymar College’s Business Management diploma and degree training programs are prepared to take the lead in their new careers.
It is tough to pin down exactly what business management is because it can be so broad.
In some contexts, it is very specifically the management and administration of a business or organization, but the skills and principles behind studying business management can be applied to a number of different business and financial careers and industries, everything from business law to human resource management to analytics to small business management. And with an economy that’s only getting more globalized and market-driven, business management continues to be one of the most diverse areas of study you can purse.
Depending on the industry and the career path, the day-to-day tasks of business management graduates can vary widely. They often require the ability to communicate well, think critically, understand and analyze information, stay organized, make recommendations backed up by data, apply solid team-working skills, and solve problems with innovation and creativity.
Some of the areas you can pursue are administrative and office assisting, financial analysis, compensation and benefits, human resources, event planning, purchasing, bookkeeping and auditing, and insurance and personal financial advising.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that, overall, business and financial jobs should grow about 5 percent — slightly faster than average — through 2029 and add over 475,000 new jobs. This may vary slightly up or down depending on what specific career path you’re seeking to pursue with a business management degree, from receptionists and administrative assistants (about as fast as average) to market research analysts and training and development specialists (both much faster than average).
The type of education you need to pursue your business career depends on what your ideal career looks like.
But almost all employers in the field prefer to see applicants who have training from an accredited school and program, like Daymar College.
It’s important that whatever program you choose includes a professional internship as part of the coursework so that you know you will get real-world, hands-on education in addition to your time in the classroom.
It also helps to choose a school that utilizes instructors who have actual, professional experience that they bring to the curriculum. For some people, a diploma program will be a better option — either because they need a focused course for their personal home or business or because they prefer a quicker path to graduation and getting out into the field to gain experience.
Others are willing to spend a little more time in the classroom in order to earn their associate or bachelor’s degree and have the opportunity to pursue a wider range of potential jobs upon graduation.
