What university major would prepare me for entrepreneurship better?
Hi. I'm currently a university student in Australia. I'm currently completing my commerce degree but I'm having trouble deciding which major would be most beneficial to me in the future. I'm torn between finance, management or marketing. I love them all. I was wondering which major would be most useful to be an entrepreneur. I'm leaning more towards marketing and management because they seem to be important in running your own business.
The best major for entrepreneurship is whatever you want to study most. That would be literature or fine arts if that's what you love. Education comes first, then business. Sounds like what you want to study is marketing, so do it. Study what you want and then let the career follow; don't study what you think makes a better career. People change careers three times in an average life, but you get to do education only once.
