Train for a better career

Florida Business Education

If you are interested in getting into a business-related career, you have many career and school options.

There are several different types of business degrees for you to pursue based on your interests and career goals. And even in a down economy, there are plenty of good jobs available here in Florida for hard-working, formally educated graduates with a diploma and a little bit of work experience.

But before you decide to enroll at a big Florida business school such as University of Miami, you will want to do some reading and thinking about the different areas of business degrees that are offered and figure out which field of study might fit your personality and interests the most. Each business field is quite different from every other one. You just need to determine which area is best for you. One great feature is many schools offer degrees in this field -- See OnlineCollegeCourses.org

For starters, there is the field of accounting. Essentially, a bachelor's degree in accounting will help prepare you to become (after graduation and after you pass the CPA exam) a certified public accountant (CPA) or a non-public accountant or internal auditor working strictly for a single company. There are many different jobs that could open up for you. Check out OnlineAccountingDegreeSchools.com

If you are the type of person who enjoys crunching numbers, budgeting and analyzing budgets, then this could very well be the perfect degree path for you.

In an accounting degree program, you take a lot of accounting classes. Most programs have so many required core classes that you may not have to complete a minor in order to graduate. You will also take general business courses such as statistics, law and ethics.

Many accounting graduates get hired by one of the few big accounting firms where they enter the field of consulting. Consulting is a great field to go into if you're not really sure where you want to live or what type of company you want to work for.

Many of the entry-level consultants at these firms travel extensively, frequently moving from city to city where they work for clients on assignments that last from just a few months to a year or two. Consultants end up seeing a variety of workplaces and learning a lot. This experience will help them learn what type of work they want to spend the rest of their lives going and maybe even figuring out where they want to live.

Business Administration
While accounting degrees are very specific, business administration degrees are more general. A bachelor's degree in business administration provides a formal education with classes from all areas of business. This is a useful degree for those who would like to work in a managerial position one day. While students don't learn in-depth about any one single area (such as accounting or finance), they may develop broader, more general skills, such as developing workplace relationship skills that will serve them well the rest of their careers.

Another popular degree is finance. This business program can prepare you for a job as an analyst, loan officer, personal or public financial advisor, or a number of other positions. This is one of the most flexible fields to go into because the possibilities are so open as far as careers are concerned. Typical classes to be taken in finance include courses in economics, accounting, cash flow management and data analysis. You will also gain experience using the software the finance industry uses.

Overall, earning a degree in business is a great step for someone who is looking for a field of study that is enjoyable and that can lead to career success. You just need to examine which particular career path is most interesting to you, get enrolled in a few classes and see how it works.
