The Best Online Degrees for Starting a Business in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of Central America’s rising stars with an increasingly diverse economy that has moved beyond tourism and agriculture to encompass a range of modern industries. It is also attracting more and more outside investment owing to its rapidly expanding markets and political stability.

With a number of renowned universities from around the world offering online degrees, it is now easier than ever to find high-quality instruction in just about any field of study. Here are some of the best degrees to study for those looking to start a business in Costa Rica.

Computer Science

Costa Rica’s electronics sector has been on the rise for some time with no immediate end in sight. A computer science degree provides training on the theory behind computers, a theory which is applicable to just about any section of the technology and electronics sector. Computer science also teaches the fundamentals of networking and the internet, and with the IT sector in Costa Rica growing year-on-year, network support is a booming subsection of the wider industry and a lucrative pursuit for anyone.

Computer Science, particularly when paired with a few years in the industry, offers a versatile degree with applications all over the world, making it a smart choice for those who want to keep their options open.

Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

The MBA is a world-renowned degree which offers a basic standard for those serious about operating their own business. Generally, pursuing an MBA requires people to put their careers on hold, but pursuing an online MBA degree offers a much more flexible timetable for completing the course.

In fact, many universities online offerings are designed with consideration for those who cannot commit the same amount of time a full-time student would. An online business administration degree will not only provide you with a solid foundation in how to run and operate a business but it will also look excellent on your resume should you choose to apply for a management position at an existing company.

Norwich University offers a particularly versatile MBA that can be customized as you study, allowing you to choose a specialty from a variety of areas including; Construction, Energy, Finance, Organisational Leadership, Project Management and Supply Chain Management and Logistics. With so many different specialties on offer, this is a perfect choice for those who want to keep their options open or haven’t yet decided exactly what kind of business they want to run.

Engineering is another very diverse degree. Most industries will require the services of an engineer of some variety at some point. Engineering pairs well with both computer science and business administration, particularly for those looking to enter the electronics sector. With knowledge of engineering and computer science, the possibility of lucrative work in product design for a major technology firm is possible.

Costa Ricans looking for a way to improve their future prospects while opening up new potential avenues for career choices should consider one of the many online degrees now available around the world.
