Best Online Courses in Business Studies 2019

Online courses Accounting, Banking, Corporate Social Responsibility, Finance, International Trade, Logistics, Marketing, Tourism and e-Business all fall within the category of Business Studies. Working professionals, recent graduates and individuals looking for a career change in a business-related field are some of the prospective students who can benefit from online courses in Business.

Some online course credits in Business classes are transferable to other undergraduate or graduate programs, such as a BBA or MBA. Lasting anywhere from a few days to a year, some online courses in Business, Economics and Administration are full time, others part-time, but they all tend to be more flexible than conventional campus-based classes thanks to the e-learning technology they employ, which brings the classroom to the students. Online courses in Business use technologies such as email, satellite conferencing, file sharing, social media and instant messaging to instruct, and open discussion forums around, key business topics, economics theories and administrative practices.

For anyone who is interested in professional development and acquiring new, valuable qualifications, online courses in Business could be an excellent option. Scroll down to read more and contact the universities and institutions hosting online courses, today!

Why the need? Some people believe they are natural salespeople and are entirely comfortable selling. Some are not so comfortable.

Cultural sensitivity and understanding can stimulate the potential for innovation in new product and service design. This course will show you how!

Could a valuable (and healthy) innovative idea, such as the use of hot air technology to fry food be adopted worldwide?

The JOBS Act, or otherwise known as the Crowdfunding Act, has been passing into law since 2012 with the most recent development, Regulation CF, enacted in May of 2016 which has opened up investing in privately-held businesses to the average investor. Previously, only the wealthiest individuals that had $200K or more in annual salary or $1MM+ in net worth, could partake.

This is analogous to tapping into the “other 96%” of US investors as potential sources of startup capital, which brings forth a new financial instrument to enable small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to raise their working capital from their own personal and professional networks or investor networks sourced via a crowdfunding portal or broker-dealer. There are many applications of crowdfunding in today’s marketplace such as tech startups, real estate, cleantech, tourist attractions, computer games, music bands and product companies to name a few....
