Is a Business Degree Useful?

(STL.News) Whether you are straight out of college or have spent several years in the job force, you may have thoughts about the value of college, and the benefits of a business degree specifically.  While some careers, such as nursing, clearly require a college education, others, such as sales, seem easy to access without doing so.  You may wonder specifically about the benefit of this degree.  Is it only beneficial if you plan to run your own company one day, or have a specific interest, such as marketing?  A degree in administration or management allows you to explore many options.
