These are three successful entrepreneurs who started early and are making waves now. And that pretty much sums up the spirit of Management: seeing opportunities where others see challenges and an ironclad growth mindset. For those who want to pick a conventional route to entrepreneurship, nothing works better than an undergraduate course in management.
Here are three things that prompt you to choose entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurial Passion – Be the John Belford
Remember John Belford (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) from The Wolf of Wall Street. In recent times, everyone is benchmarking their rise in sales with this guy’s uncanny approach. We know the epic scene where he sells a pen. Here’s one where he closes his first deal and how the rest of his team is shell-shocked looking at him. That’s a reflection of his entrepreneurial passion. If you want to be like Belford much early in your life, then center all your forces to pursue management studies.
Managerial Streak – Be the Bond of Corporate World
Ever imagined a life similar to Bond, James Bond. He gets to do so many things in so little time. He saves the world, gets the girl and always ready for the next mission. He is a true management professional who walks on a tightrope balancing his professional and personal side. That’s the DNA of a manager, and when you start early getting the management angle into your bloodstream, sooner or later you will be christened Bond, James Bond – barring the 22nd-century high-tech gadgets.
Wear Multiple Hats – Be a multi-tasking professional
BBA is a multi-disciplinary course with a dose of economics, psychology, accounts, statistics, and a wide array of subjects. Adding to that, there’s loads of outside-the-box thinking that goes into every decision. This allows you to wear multiple hats and take up the whole gamut of activities. A degree in management also provides you the flexibility to move across functions. There are people who started their career in Sales & Marketing and are now heading the Operations of a company or those who took a job in Finance and are now dabbling in Project Management.
So, embrace the spirit of management if you want to embark on your journey to becoming an entrepreneur, make a mark as a manager, or show the world you are a multi-tasker!
