How to run a business and our economy is the main topic that drives business studies.
Economics, statistics, management, finance, and accounting build the foundation of every business degree. This enables students to understand and analyze the internal structure of any enterprise and learn how the business interacts with its environment. Methods of budgeting and cost analysis, as well as human resources and marketing are studied. International trade, and research & development often complement the former topics.
Traditionally, business graduates work as managers, accountants, finance officers, marketing or human resource officers. However, due to the broad knowledge business graduates gather they are often hired in many other, non-traditional sectors as well.
