I wanted to ask if anybody knows and/or can pinpoint, how business, as a whole, is classified? Is it it's own category, or can it be considered a subset and a combination of formal, social and applied science?
For example, I made a small classification of such college departments:
I think all of these are a combination of formal, applied and social science.
Well, economics is a subset and a combination of social and applied science.
How would you describe the arts as part of business? I understand a lot of business can spring from artworks, but that would be more like commercializing art itself (that way anything could be business), not using art per se, to perform the functions of enterprise. Hmm... maybe advertisement?
