Build an empire with a career in business
Business, finance, commerce, and management
Run the world
If you’re passionate about how people exchange goods, money and ideas, then you could enjoy a career in business or law.
You could find yourself managing an innovative company, starting your own business, helping people achieve their best in HR, playing with numbers as an accountant or signing crucial deals with a career in the diverse world of business. Or as a lawyer you could help people defend their rights, find a resolution when they disagree, or protect themselves with legal support.
While business and law are technically two separate fields, there tends to be a lot of crossover – for example, corporate lawyers need to understand the business world, and anyone in business needs to understand their legal obligations.

Skills and Attributes
Business is dynamic, so having the ability to adapt to change and to think ‘on your feet’ is a must. Employers are always looking for people who approach challenges with an open mind and have the determination to solve them. The world is changing fast and technology is playing a big part of it – so being technologically savvy will definitely help.
At a base level, business people need to be accurate, honest and considered with everything they do, as a wrong decision can have big financial or social implications for a business. Actively working in a business advisory, professional, or management role can be very exciting.
