Should Business Owners Get a Degree in Sales? (Infographic)

One common question that many aspiring entrepreneurs ask is if they should have a degree in sales in order to run a successful business. The truth is there is no definitive answer for that since it really depends on what stage of your career as an entrepreneur you are at. If you are just starting out in your business, and you are still quite young to have enough time to balance school and business, then a degree in sales can help you equip with the different methodologies which one cannot just immediately pick-up and implement through the day-to-day operations of the business. However, having a degree in sales is not a requirement and does not guarantee that you will be able to run a successful business. Many business owners still fail in their venture despite having multiple degrees in sales, management, and marketing. On the other hand, many notable entrepreneurs that never even earned a college degree have been able to establish successful global brands – just look at Bill Gates and Richard Branson.
