Hi all, I am new to this thread as my major is medicine but I have always had a heart for entrepreneurship and business.
I am just wondering, for those of you who are studying or studied business as an undergraduate degree, what did you actually learn that you thought was really helpful for your business in real life?
And is there any teaching materials like textbooks or websites that you'd recommend as a learning source?
Thanks!

I think reading detailed course structure from particular uni will help you significantly in understanding whats involved. I've included unis that go into detail of whats involve:
http://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduat...s/businessman/
https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/u...course-profile
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/un...102/#structure

From these uni you will see that many modules offer workshops to student, where students use what they learned in the classroom and apply it to real life situation. There are also plenty of opportunities offered by the business school and career services for student to develop their skills, through talks held by local businesses and even challenges (e.g. my uni hosted the Santander entrepreneurship challenge, where group of around 4 business students were given a task of raising their own business with initial funds of £100 and given a few weeks. If you fail to make any profit you would have to give back £100).

Edit: worth noting that not all business courses are run the same way, so its always important to check.
