For many years now it seems that even if you have a college degree you are still unable to land a job. Do you think it would be helpful for prospective college students to get a degree in business so they have a better chance and a bigger market for obtaining a job after college? (unless of course, they are going into a specialized field that requires specialized training, i. e. Doctors)

I don't know about all of that, but I know that you have a better chance of getting a job with a degree than without one, regardless of what it is you have a degree in.

I have heard time and time again that in the end it matters that you have a degree, not necessarily what the degree is in, unless it's a very specific field. I'm not sure if a business degree would elevate your chances of getting a job but it would help you have something to fall back on if you wanted to start your own business.

I think getting a degree in Business would be a good idea if you're undecided about a career. I see it as a safe choice. I agree Auriella, it would also help you if you did want to start your own business, as many people dream of doing!

I don't know but my family seems to think so. I have two family members and a couple of friends going for their business degree. They can take a lot of their classes online, which is really nice for them.

I see it as a safe choice as well. There are tons of businesses, and it makes sense you would be a more attractive hire with a business degree. Not to say it will necessarily get you a stellar job, but I do believe there is some security in it.

It does seem to be a safe and practical major. Some degrees are harder to market than others, so I'm not sure I always buy the "as long as you have a degree" line. That said, I'd probably gouge my eyes out if I had to sit through years of business classes.
