Business is the most popular major in the United States, and for good reason. It can open many doors to a wide variety of industries, and it’s a great starting point for a career, no matter where your interests lie.
Your first impression of a business major might be that it’s too general. The fact that it is a somewhat general major is actually one of its benefits. It teaches skillsets such as strategic thinking and problem solving, leadership, business writing, and accounting and finance functions that you will need to succeed in any industry or as an independent entrepreneur.
