is a degree in business management worth it? Watch
Advice on studying business at university
Whether the course is enjoyable depends on what you find interesting. Personally...
the engineering management modules we did in my course were easy but very dull to me, but others may have found them more interesting. The only part I really found interesting were the economics oriented topics; drawing Gantt charts and doing some basic accounting calculations wasn't very interesting to me (nor was putting those into practice in a management project, where the only interesting part of that I found was reviewing government whitepapers on aspects of the market we were working on as research).
Quite literally, the majority of functions falling under business management. I am a on my placement year and working for Airbus as a Facilities Management Intern. I was also offered a role at Enterprise Rent-a-Car as a trainee branch manager and at Disney (ESPN) in a product development role. Further to this, I have friends on placements in: Business Development; Operations; HR; Marketing; the list goes on.
Yes, business management is general and covers many paths. But, you can navigate yourself through the degree onto one of those paths. If you're expecting to come out the other end in a job as a 'business manager', bad news, these don't exist. If you're looking to come out the other end and discover your business interest and go into that business function (marketing, for example), it's the degree for you.
