Some with the entrepreneurial spirit start a business out of high school with no formal training. Although a small business can be run successfully without a small business degree, having the right training can improve your chances of success.Many universities and colleges offer associates, bachelors, and master's degree programs in small business management. This training can teach you business skills such as:

  • Business Law
  • Economics
  • Computer Applications

The Future of Small Business Management

During the recent recession, many laid-off workers have turned into entrepreneurs. Since small businesses are diverse and each company has distinct job responsibilities for its management team, compensation packages vary. However, it is not unusual for a small business manager to be paid $80,000 or more annually. Small business management opportunities can be found throughout the nation in cities large and small, as well as in rural areas. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that service manager positions should grow by 12 percent in coming years.
