- Business plans
- Different types of legal ownership
- Your target demographic and how to market to them

- Business technology
A great way to learn about these aspects of business is to pursue a degree in business administration, accounting, or business information systems. There are a variety of online college degrees available to those interested in business, including associate's degrees, bachelor's degrees and MBAs.
