There are more options than ever for people looking to study business. Gone are the days when a person interested in this field simply had the choice of either going to work in sales or pursuing an MBA or settling on another career. An evolution has occurred. In the 21st century, there are more ways than ever to study business and more ways to learn about it.
Here are some of the most popular methods today for learning anything and everything about business:
College: The first two methods are tried and true, and there's a reason they're still in use. They work. For all the talk of regular, Ivy-walled campuses being relics of some bygone age, a myriad number of graduates from these schools still get jobs each year and thrive from there. A bachelor's or master's degree in business from a college large or small, prestigious or obscure is still an attractive thing on a resume, something hiring managers make note of. The schools can be expensive, but for what they can offer for a career, they're often more than worth the price of admission.
Work: Some people avoid the campus and opt for the so-called "school of hard knocks." And that can give people the training they need in business, too. Sometimes, the best business education is an entry-level sales job that can teach more in a few months, through experiences both good and bad, than several years at some university. Many companies also offer excellent training programs that are veritable courses of scholarship in themselves. It may be a little tougher to get that initial job and also to have something to fall back on if that doesn't work, but plenty of business people today don't have any degree to speak of, and it works fine for them.
Online Business Degrees: For those who want the college experience only without the campus, dorms, and athletics, the Internet has brought forth what may seem like a miracle: online education courses. These are the classes ideal for parents and students that work during the day or are otherwise non-ideally situated for attending a physical campus. After all, regular college doesn't work for everyone, and that's where the Internet can come in handy and fill in gaps. There is a range of different programs for everything from sales to international business to MBA. The only challenge is making sure to find the right online school, with so many different ones to choose from.
Alternative Universities or Correspondence Schools: Besides standard accredited colleges and online schools for studying business, there is also the option of attending a non-accredited school or correspondence college. These aren't the most glamorous schools by any stretch of the imagination, places sometimes advertised on daytime television and found in strip malls, and some are just as expensive as regular schools. Still, for people who can't fathom the traditional route for education, these schools can be what is needed to move from a dead end job to something sustainable.
