What is Business School?

A business school is a school that offers programs which center around business studies. Some business schools offer both graduate and undergraduate programs.

Undergraduate programs are known as BBA programs. Graduate programs include MBA programs, Executive MBA programs, and Doctoral studies.

This type of education will be valuable regardless of the career that is chosen after graduation. A business school degree also increases your marketability as a potential employee in the business world.
