The term “business degrees” is often used as an umbrella term covering a wide range of courses, in subjects that include finance, accounting, management and economics. It may be useful to think about two main types of business degrees: those that cover a broad spectrum of business-related subjects, and those which focus more specifically on a narrower strand.

It’s also common to find business degrees that allow students to combine a key field of business (such as human resources management, financial analysis or entrepreneurship) with a second subject, in a combined honors or joint degree option. For example, you could choose to develop your project management skills while also studying computer sciences, or combine international business studies with modern languages.

Learning a foreign language may prove beneficial for a wide range of business careers, allowing you to converse directly with representatives of international companies and financial hubs across the globe.

Typically business degrees last three or four years at undergraduate level (depending on the country and program), and a further one or two years at master’s level. Undergraduate business degrees will typically start with a focus on core business principles, later on allowing students to choose specializations. At master’s level and beyond, even greater specialization is possible.

It is therefore the vision of the University of Ghana School of Business ;

  • To become a world class business school developing global leaders
