There’s no doubt about it—the business field impacts everyone. Every business, from small, mom-and-pop shops to billion-dollar tycoons, contributes to the shifting of the economy, taxes paid, and even the price of milk on the supermarket shelf. As a manager, your job is not to get work done through people—it is to develop people through work. Management courses not only teach you how to manage or start a business; they also teach you a number of other skills along the way.
You will learn how to communicate effectively with others, how to negotiate, and how to prioritize and lead the work of others. These skills can be used in almost every area of your life.
