I am a Career Doctor with The Sunday Tribune. Here is a Q&A postI am considering doing a Degree in Business Studies and I want to know what options are available to me as a career should I choose this qualification?
A Degree in Business Studies is an excellent qualification in that it covers all the business functions providing students with a broad knowledge and understanding of commerce. Many business qualifications give the option for students to specialise in a particular business function such as marketing or purchasing in the latter years.
With the broad nature of this course there are a large number of possible career options available for individuals and this is one of the reasons why many students choose a Business qualification. These options can include, but are not limited to, finance, marketing, sales, purchasing, materials and human resources. The choice available to students is great but this can cause confusion. Therefore it is essential that you use your time studying to investigate which direction or roles suit you best.
One final point I will make is that you should decide what you want to do with your career and not let your qualification dictate your career path. Too many graduates feel tied to pursuing a career related to their qualification when they have graduated. This does not have to be the case.
