      • Business News: Read publications like The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and Harvard Business Review.
    3. Formal Education:
      • Undergraduate Degree: Many universities offer Bachelor's degrees in Business Administration (BBA) or related fields.
      • MBA Programs: An MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a popular advanced degree that covers a wide range of business topics.
