19 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Studied Business Management at University
Thank you, Investopedia.
1. Regularly being asked what business actually is and never really having a definite answer.
There are so many layers of business to choose from that a single definition just isn’t enough.
2. Your friends and family always pitched their ‘revolutionary business ideas’ to you.
Which you had to act interested in.
3. You said you were going to the careers fair for networking practice. But really you just wanted the free stuff.
4. You learned to love your hatred for Psychometric Tests.
5. It was guaranteed that there’d be more people on your course than any other.
Most of them disappeared after a few weeks and didn’t reappear until graduation.
6. Feeling slightly jealous of your friends who didn’t have to write long and detailed pieces of coursework.
7. You began to use various business terms and practices in everyday life.
Figuring out the opportunity cost of your decisions comes naturally to you.
8. Everyone else complained about their dissertation, but at least they didn’t have to come up with a completely original business idea.
9. Creating a system to learn all of the theories and models for your exams was harder than you thought.
From Herzeberg and Porter to Venkatesh and Maslow the names soon started merging together.
10. Constantly changing your mind about what counts for business professional and business casual.
11. Making a LinkedIn and realising there are no normal photos of you on the internet.
12. There was always one person who didn’t contribute in the group project.
13. Your accounting teachers probably had some weird method of teaching you the debit and credit rule.
But, hey, it stuck.
14. You were guaranteed to at least have a suit in your wardrobe for those networking occasions.
15. There’s the real you, and the business you.
16. The accounting module in first year really made you realise how much you’d forgotten from GCSE maths.
17. Investopedia was your go-to site for definitions.
18. That look you gave your friends who said you were doing an easy degree.
19. And how you became a master at Harvard referencing in your second year and felt smug when you saw first years struggling with it.
