Business Management

Business Management is the planning and controlling done by managers to achieve goals.


Management means planning, staffing, organising, directing and controlling done by the managers in an organisation to achieve the goals. 

In Business Management, the goals are achieved by the combined efforts of people in an effective manner. A business manager is the person engaged in this field , he is responsible for achieving the goals of the company with his management skills.  Studying business management helps you in future to plan how you're going to manage each and every activity in the organisation and how you will delegate the authorities and responsibilities to various business partners . Though you should be known to every aspect of your business but you are not going to do all the work by yourself but if you're in a small business you might have to manage every area.



One can start his/her own business without even getting the professional degree but he might not be able to work efficiently and effectively as compared to the one with the professional degree. studying business management can improve one's ability to analyse in a better way and take decision in favor of the organisation.  

While studying business management you get exposed to various business professionals which opens new opportunities for you.

You get the opportunity to work under a professional and gain experience or you have the option to start your own business.

You will not only be learning the necessary terms in the business field but you will be developing your leadership, communication teamwork and other skills important for this profession.


There is always a possibility that things do not turn out according to your plan. You might be planning of starting of your business but you don't have the necessary funds and this is the  major disadvantage as you may have to take loans to start your business, you can even use most of your savings and you may become the victim of losses in your business or earn less incomes.

A lot of risk is included as you are not sure whether your business will grow or not.

As the owner of the business you always have some responsibilities over you. E.g.- welfare of the employees and the organisation.

Undesirable duties. When you start up, you'll undoubtedly be responsible for either doing or overseeing just about everything that needs to be done. You can get bogged down in detail work that you don't enjoy. As a business owner, you'll probably have to perform some unpleasant tasks, like firing people.

Because of the funds, you might have to start a small business which demands more of your output in every field.
