The 11 Most In-Demand Jobs You Can Do with a Business Degree

While it’s been said that pursuing a business degree is the default choice for someone who doesn’t know what they want to do for a living, the research says otherwise.

After analyzing over 280,000 online job postings from the past year, we identified the 11 most popular jobs you can do with a business degree … and the variety of results might surprise you.

From working in business analysis, to marketing or even human resources the variety of job options and career paths in business is often unexpected. But as you consider which specific business-related career path is right for you, it’s good to know the jobs that are out there.

Organizations are clearly in need of individuals with business knowledge and skills, according to Soma Jurgensen, the School of Business Chair at Rasmussen College.

“Quite simply, businesses are in need of qualified professionals because learning curves cost organizations time and money,” she says.  “By hiring individuals with a business degree the employer has confidence that they are able to take the skills learned in the classroom and immediately apply them in their position.”

Chances are that there are positions on the list that already interest you more than others, and that’s good. As you begin to learn more about the different areas of business you’re qualified for, your interests may start to gravitate toward one or the other.

Take note of these interests and be proactive in learning more about each opportunity and the specific paths you can take. That way, you can target your ideal career and still have multiple options because of the degree you earned.

But for now, ignore the doubters and get excited about pursuing a degree in a discipline that is certain to offer an upward career trajectory and a large number of career opportunities after graduation.

If your friends and family doubt your decision, show them the statistics. They’ll soon see that you know what you’re doing and that your future is bright.
