Questions

Is a degree in Entrepreneurship or Human Resource Management more beneficial in todays society?

I am planning to enroll into a business university. I am torn between choosing Entrepreneurship and Human Resource Management as my major. Personally, I want to go for HRM since I believe I have the required skills for being one. However, its my father's decision that I should opt for Entrepreneurship since its going to prove useful for my future. Therefore, I would like to know what to opt for as per the requirements of the future demands. Thank you

Take half the money and start a business, it will likely fail. You will also learn a great deal.

Take the other half of what you would have spent on university and start your next business. You will have a better outcome.

I spent 10 years after getting my BBA degree un-learning what I was taught. Even though the degree is in Entrepreneurship, the majority of your credits will be preparing you for middle management in a Fortune 500 company.

If you want to be an Entrepreneur, be one.

Schedule a call if you'd like to bounce any ideas off me.

Is your goal to become an HRmanager? Are you looking forward to a career working for others in a specific industry the next 50 years?

Have you ever started abusiness? do you always find ways to sell something? can you see yourself taking on the risk and headache of handling not only HR but all the other areas of a business? Marketing? Sales? Finance? Supervising Employees (Non-HR management)? etc?

What do you envision your future looking like? does your past decisions and actions lean in one direction or another?

HRM may be the best thing for your career....Entrepreneurship would be good for such a future...except, the degree is meaningless as an entrepreneur and the education does not prepare you for the experience you need to succeed...

I am happy to help you process this. Please set up a call with me.
