The great thing about a business program is that not only would you have a degree which would help make you more employable, but also, you'd know something about business! As a former classics student turned corporate lawyer, I can relate to the feelings of resistance to the business program you mentioned. But I've also come around to the view that a little knowledge about the basics of business can really help with personal financial management. (Learning to run your household like a business, or even becoming a business owner and/or self-employed.)

RepoWoman, you hit it exactly! This is where I'm at. There are aspects of business that I'm clueless about. My mother and grandfather have both tried to start their own businesses in the past, but they didn't have the right knowledge set. There are aspects of business that I'm starting to get interested in - like why the company does some things that seem redundant, or why it takes three people to do something that looks like the same job? If there's a real reason, I want to know, if not, I want to make suggestions for "cutting the fat." Anyway, thanks, RepoWoman!
