    There's no one unified body of knowledge for designers. Business is a useful field to understand, so is code, so is UX or user testing or business analysis or conversion optimisation or communication theory or finance or ergonomics or accessibility or advertising or any number of related fields. Ultimately you'll have value no matter what you study, but you'll find your career direction will be shaped by what you specialise in. If you like strategy, entrepreneurialism, startups, then by all means study business. If you like working with devs, then study code or business analysis. Consulting, UX/user testing.

    Ultimately, if you approach design with a humble attitude and learn from engaging with people, you learn what you need to know.
