What advice would you give to a student looking to major in a business-related field?
Business education is not only professionally valuable but personally valuable as well. As a business student, I am exposed to knowledge that is greatly applicable to my everyday life. Generally, students seldom learn information that allows them to gain a better understanding of the "real world," but such knowledge is fundamental to business education. Business students regularly learn about the intersectionality of politics and economics, the effects of marketing on consumers, and how to prepare tax documents and understand financial statements. As future consumers, investors, and business owners, we must understand these ideas that are not formally taught to, for example, a student pursuing a psychology degree. I am an advocate for any prospective students to major in a business-related field as the skills fundamental to a business education are invaluable and transferable for virtually any career endeavor.
