“Examine your customers.”

Why complicate it?

You’re wanting to use the possessive form of business which is correctly spelled as business’s. It’s not a contraction, it’s a possessive form.

You might have some vague ideas about why this is the case – business graduates are in high demand worldwide, business touches on pretty much every aspect of modern human society, careers with a business degree are diverse and often highly paid – and these assumptions are likely to be largely true.

If you’re thinking of studying a business master’s degree, you can view the QS Business Masters Rankings 2019 for business analytics, management and finance here. Or, if you’re still not quite convinced, read on for a deeper exploration of the question: Why study business?
