If you want to have a successful business career, (especially in our increasingly global economy), it’s important to be well-rounded. Business professionals that have both experience and education will do much better than those that try to build careers on personality and charisma alone.

Of course business is about making money, and salesmanship is a huge part of it. However, when businesses reach the corporate level, it’s important for professionals to understand:

-How complex corporate business structures work,
-How to build brand recognition,
-How to manage stockholders and boards of directors,
-How to market their products and services effectively, and
-How to communicate with colleagues and associates from all over the world in a professional manner
