types of business industry

Post by Elen » Fri Dec 04, 2009 6:03 pm

Can you tell me what types of business industry exist?
Information technologies, sales, wholesaling, retailing, educational fields( may be wrong?), and 4-5 examples else...


Thanks for early reply.

That could be a long list :roll: How about the following (in no particular order, just off the top of my head)?

construction
communications
media
publishing
agriculture
mining
transport
tourism
armaments
drugs

etc

Here are two pages that have industries categorized:

http://biz.yahoo.com/ic/ind_index.html

Education can certainly be classified as a service industry, and appears on the Yahoo! page above.
