I will be a senior this coming school year so that means applying to colleges, deciding on majors and careers.
But I want to start my own bakery, mainly for chocolate. So, what types of majors should i study in college in order to be able to run my business and have a delicious and successfull bakery?
Marketing, business and accounting. This will help you with the business side of things. Then, take these 4 years to practice your a** off and pefect the skills that can't be taught in school. If, after all that, you still have the passion, then you will be well prepared. If you experience chocolate burnout, then at least you have a good degree to enter into the business world.
100% agreement with Jill.
Focus on the business, and your ability to run it... and practice. Many here have succeeded without a culinary degree, but none have succeeded without business sense (learned or self taught at the school of hard knocks).
Oops- double post.
I have taken Business Law, Management, Human Resources, Marketing, Salesmanship, Advertising, Principles of Business, 2 different accounting classes, Effective Communications, Business Math, Microeconomics, and on and on and on. That was just for my Associates in Business Management. I'm now pursuing my Bachelors so there's plenty more to come for me!
The majority of these classes are very useful when running your own business.
