“What Can I Do with a Major in Business Management?”
As companies strive to compete in a global market, they look for employees who are knowledgeable in current business practices and who can effectively evaluate the current competitive environment and meet customer needs. Businesses want employees with strong communication skills who are good at analyzing and solving problems and thinking critically.
