There a number of types of business degrees one can undertake, one of the most common of which is an undergraduate business degree. Often a business degree will cover subjects such as accounting, finance, management and, increasingly, entrepreneurship. This wide range of subjects reflects the multidisciplinary nature of business, and the importance of understanding all the key elements needed to make a business successful.
For those who wish to specialize further, some options are a Masters in Management, a Masters in Finance, and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA).
