For those of you who are in the Business Administration degree program here at the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology you are in luck! The reason why I say this is because everything in this world is a business, whether it is in health care, communications, fashion, graphic design or the lemonade stand on the corner of your street. You can take any direction your heart desires. Having a Business Administration degree is a great core for building your empire and will also look amazing on your resume when applying to jobs. While doing my research on what types of jobs people gravitate towards with a Business Administration degree, I found a large quantity of the word “Management.” Let’s say you want to test out finance, this is a department that manages outgoing and incoming money for a company. Some of you may consider human resources which is a career that helps manage the hiring process, personnel training, and employee benefits.
If you are the right side of the brain kind of person, which means creative and artsy, then think about a job in the fashion or art industry. Paths you can take include managing your own or someone else’s retail store, fashion marketing (managing the types of clothing and/or accessories that will sell in the specific store), and assist or consult with a store needing to become more profitable. For the art industry, you can better manage your own art career or you can become a curator in an art gallery. A curator oversees the selection and sales of the pieces displayed in a gallery. They also plan events for clients so customers can be exposed to their new creations.
As you can see, a student who completes a degree in Business Administration will always have career options. The road you choose to take is determined by what you truly enjoy and are extremely passionate about. The quote “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” speaks nothing but the truth. Don’t work at something you do not care for or believe you may end up regretting. Instead you should take that chance at a career that empowers you and leads you to success.
