Think you need an MBA in order to be a successful entrepreneur? Think again. There are many aspects to founding a successful business, and a foundation based on “business” (which is highly subjective) is just one of them. In fact, almost any degree you can imagine can bolster small business success if you look at it from the right angle.

你认为成为一个成功的企业家需要一个MBA文凭?再想想吧。建立一个成功的企业需要多方面因素,“工商背景”只是其中之一。事实上,只要你从合适的角度去看,几乎你能想象到的任何学历都可以成功创建一家小企业。

Art history majors, English majors, and geography majors, unite! Your degree is perfect preparation for entrepreneurial success. I’m surprised at how many things I use daily that I learned while in college. Here are a few of the most “unorthodox for business success degrees” worth having and how to put them to work for you.

艺术史专业,英语专业,以及地理专业,联合起来!你的学历背景为创业成功做好了完美的准备。我很惊奇我在大学学到的东西居然有这么多现在每天都用得到。下面是一些“最适合创业的非正统专业”,如果你要创业很有可能用到这些知识。

1. Writing and English.

1、文学类和英语专业

There’s not a single business out there that doesn’t need the skills of a professional writer. In fact, if you specialize in a field like search engine optimization, blogging or other aspects of technical writing, you’re golden. You might even want to open your own SEO company or monetize blogs for a living. Otherwise, you’re a step ahead of the competition when it comes to drafting business plans or appealing (in emails) to investors.

没有任何一个公司不需要专业的作者。事实上,如果你擅长某一领域比如搜索引擎优化、博客或者其他方面技术的写作,你就很有价值。你可能甚至想自己开个SEO公司或者赚钱的博客来谋生。另外,你在起草商业计划或者吸引投资者(以电子邮件形式)时将有竞争优势。

2. Accounting or finance.

2、会计或者金融专业

You might take a couple of 101 finance courses while getting an MBA, but is that going to prepare you for charting your finances to investors? Is it going to show you how to run the numbers while running a business? Understanding the financial aspects of a business can make it or break it. You can also consider starting your own financial consulting company where the sky’s the limit for revenue.

你可能为了MBA学位上了几节金融专业课程,但这足以让你向投资者介绍财务报表吗?你能明白如何在公司运作中处理财务数据吗?懂不懂金融的方方面面可以让你得天下也可以让你失天下。你也可以考虑开创你自己的金融咨询公司,这个领域“钱途”无限。

3. Communication.

3、传播类

This degree isn’t just for pageant contestants anymore. “Communication” is a very diverse field and includes spoken, written, and non-verbal cues. Getting a strong foundation on basically how to work with people—and subtly manipulative them to do as you wish—is the ultimate tool for entrepreneurs. Even if you don’t get a degree in it, you certainly need to excel at communication in order to succeed.

这个学位不仅仅选美比赛选手需要。“传播”是一个非常广阔的领域,包括说、写和无声的提示。通过这个专业的学习你将拥有一个扎实的基础——如何与他人合作,如何让他人心甘情愿地为你服务——这是一个企业家最基本的技能。即使你没有获得这个专业的学位,你也需要擅长沟通,这样才会成功。

4. Computer engineering.

4、计算机工程

If you majored in this, you already have a knack for tech savviness that can take any business to the next level. From web development to analytics, taking charge of your hosting needs to mobile readiness, you can save a lot of time, hassle and trouble if caring for even a sliver of your business’ web needs is in the bag. Likewise, you can start-up a tech company (Silicon Valley address optional) and make the most of the digital era.

如果你专业是计算机工程,那么你就拥有了使任何一家公司更上一层楼的技术头脑。从网站开发到网页分析,从管理主机到面向移动端,如果公司的网络需求都能被照顾到,哪怕只是在一小块领域,你可以省去很多时间、争论和麻烦。同样的,你也可以创建一家科技公司(在不在硅谷都行),充分利用数字时代的资源。

5. Philosophy.

5、哲学

Yes, there’s plenty more you can do with a philosophy degree than “just teach”. Learning critical thinking skills, thinking outside the box and elegant debating are all crucial for a small business owner. It gives you a foundation for connecting with others, seeing different perspectives and, ultimately, getting to know what makes people (like customers) tick.

Take your degree and see how it fits into entrepreneurial success. You’re sure to find a few connections and capitalizing on them is what will give you that competitive edge.

没错,拥有哲学学位的你除了“教学”还可以做更多。对于一个小企业家来说,学会批判性思维技巧,跳出思维定势以及优雅的辩论都至关重要的。哲学奠定了你与他人交流的基础,从不同的角度看问题,最终明白如何激发别人(比如消费者)。

      看看你的学位会对创业成功有什么帮助。你肯定会找到你专业的一些关联和资本,这些将带给你竞争优势。
