About a Career in Business Management

Have you ever dreamed about leading teams, fostering thriving work environments for others, and launching projects that take a business from “doing okay” to “excelling”? Or maybe you’ve dreamed of working with musical acts, actors, models, or athletes—guiding them to their best career?

If these ambitions sound like you, a career as a business manager may be a great fit! As a business manager, you’ll be responsible for “big picture” thinking, finding the golden opportunities others may miss and turning them into success.

Organizations in just about every field need business managers, so you can find positions in healthcare, education, nonprofits, large and small corporations, tech startups, and more. And, of course, creative professionals, such as actors, need business managers to handle their finances and help them grow their careers. And while these two business management career paths might seem pretty different at first glance, there is actually considerable overlap—both businesses and individuals often need that “big picture” perspective to help them meet their goals.

As a business manager, not only will you have several employment options: you’ll be well compensated for your hard work. According to Salary.com, business managers can make up to $96,981 annually, with generous benefits and bonuses on top of that. There’s also room to grow: the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment for managers with operations specialties is expected to grow by 11% through 2032. There is a clear demand for business managers, meaning you may be able to negotiate a very competitive salary.

Whether you are looking to start a new career, or enhance your skills in an existing role, this course will provide you with a strong foundation in business management that will help you excel wherever your career takes you. If self-employment is a dream of yours, this course will even provide you with information about building a business management company of your own.

If IAP Career College has the course that you are looking to take, take it. I hesitated between several career colleges prior and choosing IAP was the best decision I had made. In 4 months, I had already completed 2 certifications and those won’t be my last. It gives you clear insights on the program you wish to learn and the schedule is adaptable to your lifestyle.
