The days of business being a boring subject to study are long gone. In today’s varied university course world, those interested in a business degree can quite easily find the perfect major to fit their future aspirations.
Why a business degree gives you options
An undergraduate degree in business can lead to employment in a vast range of industries. Additionally, forecasts for future job growth in some of these areas are more than promising.
Joboutlook estimates a strong future job growth for accountants, with expectations of 219,300 accountants employed across Australia by 2020 (compared to 188,100).
The biggest states to have more accountants working by 2020 are NSW (at 38%), VIC (at 26.6%) and QLD (at 17.5%).
Another potential profession following a business degree is financial planning. Joboutlook estimates a very strong job growth over the next five years for the field, with 63,200 financial planners employed by 2020 (compare to 51,800 currently).
Yet, even once you’ve made up your mind and have chosen your perfect degree, one question still remains. How do I fit studying into my life?
