It's an interesting question, well in all fairness i think i would have to say that it really depends on a person what exactly to put on his business card, OK to be more direct some information which can be found on business cards in my country are : the identification of person, the logo of his campany, his occupation, his contacts emailadress and his picture just above of his business card.
