Business is the practice of exchanging goods and services in order to earn a profit or advance a cause (i.e., non-profit businesses). A for-profit business is an entity that is involved in economic production, ranging from small businesses that often operate locally with less than 100 employees to large corporations that can span multiple countries and have hundreds or thousands of employees. 

There are four main types of business structures: sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations. If you own your own unincorporated business and pay personal income taxes on your profits, then you likely operate under a sole proprietorship. Partnerships consist of two or more people who operate a business together and are each responsible for profits and losses.

An LLC protects the owners from being personally liable for any debt or lawsuits that occur against the company. Corporations, meanwhile, are legal entities that are separate from their owners and allow shareholders to profit from their earnings without being personally liable for debt. 

Whether you are starting your own business, seeking business certification, skills, or knowledge to advance your position and increase your salary, or looking for a career in business and want to make your resume stand out, taking a business class will help you achieve your goals. There are numerous types of business classes for you to take in the Boston area, from comprehensive courses on marketing and advertising to classes that will prepare you for a specific certification exam.
