The fashion industry is moving at an extraordinarily fast pace and individuals should always be ahead of the game. Business students are specifically trained to keep up in a fast-paced environment. It requires mental fortitude and an ability to keep up with changing trends. Business students research trends in the industry and at the same time they will have a chance to collaborate with brands in fashion management and create a plan for bringing new styles in front of their target customer or buyer.

Government and Public Service

Several people have claimed that government work has a lot in common with running a company. Over the past few years, this career path has gained prominence. A number of Business undergraduates and MBA holders joining government agencies saw a sharp increase in 2017. This is primarily because Business Administration courses in Manila as well as across the country cultivate and grow responsive government leaders.

A business administration degree is more than just studying Business and Management. It is about giving students a diverse skill set that allows them to explore a variety of “non-traditional” occupations.
