My Reasons for Majoring in Business

Satisfactory Essays
Why I majored in business? For numerous reasons, I majored in business, some common and others personal. All of my reason shared a goal and that is to graduate with a degree in order to enhance the quality of my life with a successful and fulfilling career.

My common reasons for deciding to major in business will most likely be similar to many other students. Those reasons are that the business major had a perceived lower degree of difficulty to complete then that of other majors. The major also offered many different minors that I could pursue, thus giving me a variety of choices. Being that it is the largest major at most universities it offered the most classes at various times, which made making a schedule semester to semester that would fit into a busy life with work easy for me. Finally, the business major offered the best potential for securing a job upon graduation because of the broad scale of jobs out in the “real” world.

On a more personal level, I chose the business major because I love business. I love the concept of capitalism, competition, making money from ideas, hard work, other peoples money, leading others in a common goal and achieving that goal, gaining success by incorporating all of these concepts. I have always wanted to be important, to be a boss, to be an owner of a company which I love going to everyday and to do this a degree in business was exactly what I needed. The business major was a logical first step towards this and so I chose to study business here at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell. It wasn’t till coming here that I chose to minor in marketing and finance in order to create a well rounded foundation and with graduation coming in May I don’t regret
