Business Management — Career Paths

A Herzing University degree in business management provides students with knowledge in all aspects that make a business profitable. Because of this, graduates have unlimited career path opportunities and flexibility when seeking a position.

For those unsure which path is best for them, the first step is to pay attention to which classes they find most stimulating while earning a business degree. For example, if a student enjoys learning the different methods a business can use to attract new customers, that student may have a future in marketing, sales, advertising, or product development. If another student is fascinated by how a company keeps track of the vast number of financial transactions that happen every day, a position in accounting or finance may be ideal for that student.

Recent job titles for graduates from the Herzing University System Associate in Business Management degree program include:

Team Leader, Accountant, Customer Service Representative, Office Manager, Account Representative and Administrative Assistant. Examples of companies these graduates are employed by include Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Target, Coca-Cola Enterprises,, and Terminex International.

Herzing University System Bachelor's in Business graduates recently took positions with titles such as:

Business Analyst, Auditor, Accountant, Director, Restaurant Manager, Paralegal, Department Supervisor, Account Representative, Medical Office Manager, Manager and Business Owner. A sample of companies these graduates are employed at include: Covance, Solvay Pharmaceuticals, WyoTech, ProHealth Care, Inc., John Deere, Allina Health System, and Solo Cup Company.

Career advancement

Advancement in business careers depends on the actual career path the student chooses (such as marketing executive, department director or corporate trainer). Some business management degree graduates will be able to move up in the field simply by gaining on-the-job experience, while others will need to earn a master’s degree or industry credential. Once a student/alumni has determined what their career goal position is, our Career Development Department can help that individual create a plan that will position them for the greatest chance at achieving their professional goal.

Work environment

Business Management graduates typically work in an office environment. Offices may be located in an office building or on location at a manufacturing company or factory. Some workers may be able to work from a home office with weekly or occasional trips to the main office for meetings and presentations. Depending on the specific position, some travel may be required to satellite offices or client establishments.

A 40-hour work week is standard although additional hours may be required prior to important project or reporting deadlines. Those with greater responsibility will typically work beyond the 40-hour standard, and managers in some industries may rotate being on-call (this is especially prevalent in hospitality, restaurant and retail management). Executives often spend additional time attending professional events and staying current with industry trends. Full-time employees generally receive full benefits packages including health/dental insurance, paid vacation and sick time, and retirement/wealth savings or accrual plans (such 401(k), company stock, and profit-sharing).

Business Management — Career Outlook

The growing economy is continually fostering the addition of new businesses to the market. These businesses will need qualified professionals to ensure profitability and survival, creating a strong career outlook for business professionals.
