Explore Careers in Business

The way we work is evolving, and that's especially apparent in the business realm. As more younger people enter the workforce, they are affecting trends, such as a less rigid hierarchy in the workplace and the rise of entrepreneurship.

A growing number of people are becoming their own bosses, learning skills and launching their own businesses without necessarily spending years "learning the ropes" in a traditional setting.

All this is possible because of technology, which meets customers and workers where they are. And as with other industries, it's constantly changing.

It's an excellent time to be in the business world. And you don't need a four-year degree to reap benefits.
