Job Prospects for Business Programs offered at the Universities in Ghana and their average salaries

There are various reasons why people study business in school. It could be purely out of their love for numbers or that the family business they'd be joining requires that they know something about business. There are many other reasons as well. 

One thing that’s for sure is that one needs to enjoy mathematics to an extent to go in for such a course in the first place. It can be observed that generally, individuals who loved mathematics during their basic education tend to opt for business courses or science courses at the secondary education level.

The business degree is a broad program that encompasses sub-programs like; Banking and Finance, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Accounting, Procurement Management, International Businesses Management, Business Information Technology, Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, and Management and Organizational Development.

If you’re anything like me, whiles in secondary school you must have thought that a person pursued a business course only if they wanted to become bankers in future. This, by the way, is very far from the truth.

In my quest to prevent any student from having this same mentality of banking being the only career option for business degree holders, I’ve put this article together to delve into some of the sub-programs of the business degree you might not have known of and the various job prospects, as well as the average monthly salary one stand to earn from such jobs. 

Do bear in mind that these very job prospects to be mentioned are among the high-paying options in the business industry.
