Discover the Best Business Classes in Chicago

Business is the practice of exchanging goods and services with the intention of earning a profit or advancing a cause (i.e., a non-profit business). The four major business structures are sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations. A sole proprietorship, also known as being self-employed, is an unincorporated business owned by one individual. That person is responsible for paying all taxes on profits earned from the business and is legally liable for any debt incurred. 

In a partnership, two or more people run a business together, with each contributing resources and sharing profits and losses. Limited liability companies are hybrid entities that combine the legal protections of a corporation with the tax benefits one receives in a sole proprietorship or partnership. Corporations, on the other hand, are legal entities that are separate from their owners, therefore, the owners are protected from being personally liable for debt or legal action incurred by the company. 

Are you starting your own company or going into business with someone? Wanting to grow your knowledge as a professional? Or seeking a promotion at your current company? Whether you are starting your own business, entering a partnership, seeking a career in business, or hoping to advance in your current job, taking business classes will give you the comprehensive knowledge you need to achieve your goals. From marketing, communication, and human resources to accounting, finance, and project management, there are numerous subject areas that are essential for operating a successful business.
