Business education is vital for success in virtually every career. All citizens must apply business skills
and concepts to meet the challenges of a changing society and workplace (Smith, 2006).
Business instruction is organized to prepare individuals for occupations in administrative office
systems, accounting and finance, management, and computer information systems. It is the enterprise
of education directed at the study and research of the field of business. It includes secondary education
and higher education or university education, with the greatest activity in the latter. It is often or almost
always oriented toward preparing students for the practice of an occupation in business or businessrelated
fields. It can be studied to degree level relating to teaching business in schools or universities
however a teaching qualification is essential afterwards. If one doesn’t want to go into teaching it can
be useful when going into management or the business sector.
