Business, math, economics, and accounting courses will be the
most valuable to you in preparing for franchise ownership. Before
buying into a franchise, you'll have to do a lot of research into
the company, analyzing local demographics to determine whether a
business is a sound investment. English classes will help you
develop the research skills you'll need. In addition, you will need
to hone your communication skills, which will be essential in
establishing relationships with franchisers and customers. Take
computer classes since it is virtually impossible to work in
today's business world without knowing how to use a computer or the
Web. If you already know of a particular area that interests
you-such as food service, fashion, or fitness-take classes that
will help you learn more about it. Such classes may include home
economics, art, dance, or physical education.
