Undergraduate Pathway

Top 25 Undergraduate Pathways in Business 2019

Many universities have language requirements for enrollment in certain programs. When students do not meet this prerequisite, they usually have the option of enrolling in an undergraduate pathway program to help them gain a firm grasp of the language.

What is an undergraduate pathway in business? This type of program usually helps people gain a firm grasp on language through a variety of business-related courses. Students typically study management theory and business theory in addition to finance, economics, and accounting. The program often also covers marketing and strategy implementation to give people a solid foundation for a more advanced program.

An undergraduate pathway in business can help students develop several key skills that will help them to have successful careers. Excellent leadership and communication skills are often beneficial for creating a strong business. A competency in analytical thinking often enables students to navigate the complex world of business while also benefitting them in their personal lives.

There is no one price for an undergraduate pathway program. With every school being different in terms of tuition costs, the price could be drastically different from one institution to the next. This is especially true for universities located in different countries.

A background in business typically qualifies students for nearly endless career paths. Jobs as business managers, data analysts, and entrepreneurs are popular options. Many people choose to work as office managers or advertising executives. Positions as investment bankers and business consultants may also be available. Some students even become CEOs or administrative officials. Careers as accountants can usually be found.

Whether people live close to the university of their choice or halfway across the world, they have the option to attend due to the popularity of online classes. In remote programs, students who live in separate countries can still participate in their chosen programs. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
