Business is the most popular field of study in the U.S., and business majors prepare graduates for a variety of potentially lucrative career tracks.

A degree in a business major can prepare a graduate to work in a variety of settings, including government, nonprofit organizations and business. Finance majors learn how to create budgets and plan investments, and their skills may lead them to careers as financial advisors.

 A business degree is also an entry point — though not the only one — into an MBA degree program. Aspirants may also have to meet advanced math and computer skills requirements.
