Vocational education or technical training programs in management are suitable for students who wish to have a career in business/ entrepreneurship Vocational education is a form of education in which people are provided with practical skills which will allow them to engage in careers which involve manual or practical abilities.

These other kinds of management programs generally consist of two parts of training. The academic portion covers the traditional classroom study about the specific area such as small business start-ups or any other vocational area. The second portion involves intensive training and exams and/or project work dissertation submission.
The method by which job training is delivered often varies based on the needs of the company, the trainee, and on the task being performed. The method should suit the audience, the content, the business environment, and the learning objective. Ideally, the method chosen will motivate employees to learn, help employees prepare themselves for learning, enable the trainees to apply and practice what they've been taught, help trainees retain and transfer what they have learned, and integrate performance with other skills and knowledge.
