    a BS in business management, what kind of jobs can i get?

    Honestly I don't know if I wanna continue being a business major. I hear alot of things, like I won't make much money, its hard to find a job, etc... I took business management as my major because I wanted to become part of the business world so to say.. but I was thinking making going into possibly financing, or marketing.. Anyone here know what kind of jobs a degree in business management can get? Anyone here with a BS in business management?

    Eh, it depends on the company. Usually you get relegated to 'Specialist', front-line management, or administrative roles. For more technical jobs, companies usually look for a specialied degree (Computer Science/Programming, Engineering, etc.). In my company, a Business Management degree has worked well for those already in a management or corporate job and then they obtained the degree while in that job...makes for a nice little bump-up in salary. But yeah, you may have to prove yourself more for a position versus someone who has a degree in a particular concentration.

    You can be a product manager. I was one for a while and it was an interesting job. It takes finance, marketing and development and rolls them into a single job. While you don't actually do those above, you do help create the direction that each should follow.

    I have a bud who was a product manager for P&G and he loves his job. It ain't a high flying finance or banking job, but it provides lots of control over a brand.

    What's a BS in Business Management? In our Bachelor of Business Admin program, you get to choose a specialization in third year (Accounting, Marketing, etc.) if you wish, and most people do.

    As for product managers, i believe that they're looking mostly for marketing students. At least those are the people that they hire from our program.

    If you would not go into random threads and post garbage, it would be very much appreciated.

    I was in a similar situation before......

    I took BA (Hons) Business Studies with Marketing for my first degree but when I've realised my interest lies within marketing, I've noticed I never took enough marketing modules. Out of 18 modules that I took within 3 years, only about 3 of them were based on marketing (the minimum requirement)! The other modules I took varied from finance, human resources, IT to tourism, etc.

    That's one of the main reasons why I took a Masters degree in MA Marketing so I can specialise in one subject after my first degree.

    somemale, consider this an official warning. If I spot you doing that, it'll be a x number of days ban (x number == random number I press on my numpad with my eyes closed). THat kind of garbage cannot be tolerated.
