The first step towards harnessing the forces that shape our world, and eventually getting them to work for instead of against you, is to understand them. All of us, whether we like it or not, are influenced on a daily basis by the movement of dollars and cents - business and economics, in other words.
Studying business and economics as a major means embracing several sub-disciplines:
- Human resources management
- Contract law
- Strategic planning
- International trade
As well as several other subjects crucial to your development as a future manager.
Aside from being generalists, business and economics graduates who are successful in the workplace typically have the ability to absorb and digest large amounts of information quickly, excellent communication skills, and an inclination to make decisions quickly.
