Careers in Business

Employers seek Nebraska Wesleyan grads with a business degree

Business careers are as varied as businesses themselves. Most require an aptitude for mathematics and the ability to quickly analyze, compare and interpret facts and figures. Communication skills, critical thinking, listening, nonverbal communication and problem-solving abilities are likewise valuable.

Business graduates must be good at working with people, business systems and technology. Success hinges on keeping promises and delivering quality. A high standard of integrity is essential.

A business administration degree is highly sought after by employers for its broad areas of expertise. Graduates often launch or advance careers in:

  • accounting
  • management
  • business information systems
  • hospitality management
  • human resource management
  • sales and marketing
  • small-business management

Business degrees are highly valued in government agencies, health care, industry and nonprofits. A degree in business also prepares prospective entrepreneurs and small business innovators.
