Four Key Courses for Business-minded Students

No matter your chosen field of study, most college degree programs allow for flexibility and elective options in filling out your courses. As the saying goes, "America's business is business." That means -- no matter your career choice -- you'll be selling a product, a service, or your own abilities. That's why you need a well-rounded education that includes training in a range of skills that you can bring to the table at any career choice.

Here are some college or trade school classes that can prove indispensable in the workplace:

Writing and Communications
Take a business writing class. Unless you live in a cave, you'll need to communicate with co-workers, suppliers, customers, lenders, governmental or educational entities, and professional organizations. Learn how to write effective letters, email communications, newsletters, memos, and business documents.

Bookkeeping
Knowing how to track accounts, ledgers, invoices, and utilize real-life tax skills can help along every career path. You may need to wrangle budgets, track company sales, or perform other bean-counter tasks for your own job, your department, or as a contractor or entrepreneur. Search Bookkeeping schools

Website Design
If you spend any time at all online, you know how much you rely upon businesses that have their own websites. Whether you're looking for a gardener, dentist, hair dresser, or car mechanic, you often make your decision based on the appearance of their website. It doesn't matter what profession you're in, hobby you enjoy, or social group you're drawn to, you'll want your own website even if it's no more than an extended business card. Search Web design schools.

Marketing
Sell yourself to employers. Sell products or services. Whether you're a massage therapist, screenwriter, or a research scientist, you have a product, service, or concept to sell -- or goal that you simply cannot accomplish alone. Knowing how to distinguish yourself from the competition can make all the difference.
