Why Study Business? | Top Universities

Business and related subjects (such as the FAME group – finance, accounting, management and economics) are among the most popular fields of study at universities worldwide, particularly at graduate level. 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?

Types of business degrees

Business degrees are typically understood to encompass a fairly wide group of programs, some highly specialized and others more interdisciplinary;

Medical Bills Are the Biggest Cause of US Bankruptcies: Study

Bankruptcies resulting from unpaid medical bills will affect nearly 2 million people this year—making health care the No. 1 cause of such filings, and outpacing bankruptcies due to credit-card bills or unpaid mortgages, according to new data. And even having health insurance doesn’t buffer consumers against financial hardship.

The findings are from NerdWallet Health, a division of the price-comparison website. It analyzed data from the U.S. Census, Centers for Disease Control, the federal court system and the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation that promotes access, quality and efficiency in the health-care system.

“A lot of Americans are struggling with medical bills,” said NerdWallet Health Vice President Christina LaMontagne.

NerdWallet estimates that households containing 1.7 million people will file for bankruptcy protection this year.

Even outside of bankruptcy, about 56 million adults—more than 20 percent of the population between the ages of 19 and 64—will still struggle with health-care-related bills this

Accounting Vs Finance: Which Should You Study?

It’s all about FAME. And no, we’re not talking about the 1980 American musical film Fame, we’re talking about the popularity of FAME subjects among university students… obviously.

The popularity of FAME subjects (finance, accounting, management and economics) comes from their vital role in the world of business, particularly those first two letters of the acronym: accounting and finance.

The primary difference in the battle of accounting vs finance is that accounting has a relatively narrow focus, while finance is wider-ranging, covering an array of specializations in the world of business, economics and banking.

A total of 36 countries boast at least one university among the 200 top accounting and finance schools ranked in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018, showing it’s not just highly developed countries which have a need for accountants.

But, should you study finance or accounting? Read on for an in-depth comparison of
