What is business education and why is it necessary? What is the importance of learning to do business? The first is to differentiate business education from business training, we understand by training the process of acquiring more or less development, aptitude or skill, while education refers to the development or improvement of intellectual faculties.
Of course before, during and after launching into the “adventure” of starting a business, it is necessary that the entrepreneur has the necessary basic training to support the necessary decision making throughout the business activity.
The fact that the entrepreneur possesses basic knowledge in economic theory, fiscal, labor or financial aspects, including commercial law, can be an important weapon at the time that the entrepreneur can take the helm of his company and take it firmly to achieve the business objectives set. All these aspects are part of business training.
This training can be acquired in several ways, through the university system (careers such as economic, business, business administration and management, law, etc.), through specific training plans (Masters in business training, business schools) or also through the professional experience acquired by the entrepreneur in work done previously.
Currently, outsourcing or outsourcing processes make it possible for any entrepreneur to have all these areas of knowledge covered in his company through the contracting of the respective services to external companies, labor, tax, financial, lawyers, etc.
Any person who wants to launch into the business world will not need specialized training to carry out their business plans. In such a way through the subcontracting of these services, the aspect of business training can be covered.
But in addition to everything discussed so far, we must take into account certain aspects that also influence the result obtained in the management of a business. These aspects belong more to the “spirit of the entrepreneur” and are the basic conditions that the “character” of the entrepreneur must compose.
There is no system that imparts business education, education in the necessary values for the entrepreneur and that, reinforced with the technical-formative aspect, make up the framework that the entrepreneur must have to carry out a successful business management.
Management and Business Strategy
In these aspects that concern “business education” is what we want to focus on. The best, and almost unique, way to reflect those aspects or conditions that every entrepreneur must meet is through experience. Logically it would not be convenient for the entrepreneur to acquire this education in the exercise of his activity (for that there is always time) if not that the experience of people who once were like them can contribute that knowledge and valuable points of view that will give an added value and will enrich that business education that seems vital to us.
