Business education involves teaching students the fundamentals, theories, and processes of business. These majors prepare students for an occupation in business or a business-related field, or a teaching career in academia. At the university level, students have the opportunity to take general business courses, or to seek a specific degree in business studies. Courses offered vary by school, but typically include basic selections such as Accounting, Marketing, Finance, and Operations Management. Specific curricula and degree-granting procedures differ somewhat by program and by region.
