For every university course, there is a podcast that will put your lectures into context and further enhance your learning.

If you are studying business, listening to a podcast can give you fresh insight. Business is a broad topic, and one which is hit daily by fluctuations in the stock market, political unrest and entrepreneurial breakthroughs. Keeping up to date with what’s happening in the news will give you a better handle on the subject.

Here are 6 of our top podcast picks for business students:

1. Entrepreneur on Fire

This award-winning podcast sees host John Lee Dumas chat to different inspiring entrepreneurs, every day of the week. Get inside the minds of business greats from Seth Godin, Barbara Corcoran and Tim Ferriss. See how mistakes – as well as successes – can pave the way to a eureka moment.

2. BBC Business Daily

Get all the silent global business news from one of the world’s leading news authorities. Is there another financial crash around the corner? Will the rise of robots affect job prospects?
