Since he doesn't know what business he wants to get into, I'd say a skilled trade (e.g. electrician, plumber, handyman). He'll have to get his hands dirty though, and work for someone else until he gets those skills (meanwhile, he can keep building up that savings account). Then, once he's finished an apprenticeship, the Business Diploma might come in handy (and that's assuming that a business diploma is worth more than most MBAs are in the US, in terms of actual knowledge acquired).
