This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
University major designed for young entrepreneurs with an eye toward opening their own businesses. Yes, there's already an Economics major in the game, but that's geared more toward the Business career track. This major is more specialized for opening and running a home or Community lot business with the Open for Business Expansion Pack, although Open for Business is not required for this major to work in-game.

Business Management
The foundation to owning your own business. Manage your business, manage your people, manage yourself.
cloned from Economics
linked careers: Business, Politics, Show Business
GUID: 0x0042CB1A
focused skills: charisma, logic, creativity, cleaning

1. Location! Location! Location!: Home Business vs Community Lot
2. Under Construction: Building vs Renovating

1. Stock Up: Managing Inventory
2. Help Wanted: Hiring and Managing Employees

1. Customer Stars: The Key to Customer Loyalty
2. Best of the Best: Getting a Good Review

This major has been fully tested in-game. It has its own GUID and therefore will not replace any other major. The icon has been extracted and hand-crafted from Maxis' "First Business" icon. To use this major (or any other custom major), definitely download FrikaC's Majors Made Easier

Technically, there are no in-game advantages to using this major over any other major. I just thought it was more fitting for my Sims who are planning to run their own businesses than the other majors available in the game.

Is it possible to make this major work so that it gives extra badges to start your career?
You could make a new version of it for the ones that have the OFB and that one gives also badges (when going to class). Say... Going to all classes with homework done (using the game homework rules) will give you the exact amount of knowledge that is needed to receive a gold badge after you have the silver badge (goldExp - silverExp = valueIWant). That should be enugh to get bronze badges to:
sell items, restock, cashier, make flowers, make bots, make wood toys (all stuff). And if the sim already had some exp (almost bronze) he could even jump the bronze badge!

Any feedback on this?
