Business & Hospitality

Anyone can start a business; to keep one going takes more talent and more skill, usually in more areas. Strengthen your skills with people, numbers and patterns so you can be the more that keeps a business growing.

Working in business and hospitality, your focus is on one or more of the factors that drive profits — competitive strategy, marketing, finance, human resources, the customer experience and more.

Businesses need people with that focus, and the demand for your honed skills is at or above average. Salaries are also good, especially in management roles.
