semi-business-related?

I’m writing my statement of purpose for grad school application. I would like to express “I came from an academic background that is half business-related”, as I majored in E-business. What is the correct adjective form in this case?

semi-business-related, semi-business related, semi business-related, or “semi” is not required at all?

Thanks.

Answer

If you really want to use business-related, just use that. No semi- required. Related means:

connected in some way (MW)

E-business is definitely “connected in some way” to business, so just say,

I came from an academic background that is business-related.

Or, even better,

My academic background is business-related.
