Deciding what to major in isn't easy. It's probably one of the biggest decisions you'll make in high school or your early college years. If you've thought it through and settled on business, your decision-making isn't over. You'll need to decide on the area of business you want to study. Do you want to be an accountant, financial advisor, marketing wizard, or business owner? To be an accountant, you'll need a bachelor's degree in accounting…a financial advisor needs a degree in finance…a marketing wizard needs a degree in marketing…and a business owner might look for a degree in entrepreneurship or small business administration. And, the list goes on. At AACSB-accredited schools, there are degree programs in insurance, tax, auditing, corporate finance, strategy, international business, business administration, management, human resources, and even programs that mix majors and provide dual degrees (such as business and engineering).
