Business Studies

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

Business studies is an academic program that is designed for students wanting to learn more about how businesses are run. Courses may include more general topics or more specific ones to help prepare students for a particular career.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

How to Achieve Superior Performance and Strategic Success

"What gets measured gets done." It's a business axiom you've heard a thousand times. Unfortunately, the things most companies measure (short-term financial performance and local productivity) don't determine long-term success in a competitive marketplace.

In order to achieve and sustain strategic success via operational excellence, your performance management system must balance customer metrics, business process metrics, internal development metrics, and financial metrics. And, these metrics must be aligned to focus on corporate vision and strategy.

This tool has evolved into a strategic management system that can help you achieve and sustain strategic success as the business environment changes.... [-]
