Business is perennially one of the most popular fields of study for distance learning students because of the practical applications of a business degree. Business students learn important life skills in finance, marketing, management, and ethics, and employers are quick to recognize these skills with promotions and higher salaries. Many companies will actually pay the tuition for employees to advance their education with a distance learning business degree.

There are numerous fields of study within the realm of business, the most general of which is business administration, or an MBA for graduate students. Other popular fields include accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, human resources, management, and marketing. These are the most mainstream sub-specialties of business, and millions of people study these fields every year. Most of these degrees are popular online. Online classes are not only convenient but they are also typically lower in costs.

If you’d like to go a little more niche and select a business degree that isn’t quite as popular, yet still leads to increased employability, you should consider studying business law, communications, conflict & negotiation management, entertainment management, public relations, real estate, retail & sales management, risk management, or taxation.

E-business is an especially hot degree right now as companies move their stores online, and new online-only companies are being formed everyday. If you love social media, consider internet marketing which is critical in spreading brand awareness online.

International business is a good field for people who love to travel and see the world, as is tourism & hospitality. Non-profit management is a great degree for those who have a big heart for helping their communities, as is organizational leadership. If you are a natural leader with diverse talents, project management or sports management may be right for you. If you’ve got a technical mind and enjoy logistics, you should consider supply chain & operations management or contract management.

By now you can probably see that “business” is such a broad field that you could spend your whole life studying and never learn everything there is to know about business. That’s one reason that some distance learning business degrees include work experience as part of their programs. There’s only so much you can learn from lectures and reading; you need to get out in the world and simply do to get real practical experience.

It’s free to request more information directly from a school, and there are no commitments.

    Isn’t it a good policy to have a pool of applicants to identify and select those who are the best ?

    Probably, YES ! You’re among many that I’m look at, smelling them by my nose acutely pointed in their direction. For that, could I have, if you don’t mind, an overall policy on your Master degree in Accounting programme.

    I am in Mogadishu, Somalia (most eastern horn of Africa).
