What will I learn?

Students gain a broad set of skills and knowledge about general business operations.

The general business major program is designed for students desiring a broad understanding of business that spans all facets of the business enterprise, providing them with a broad philosophical and economic perspective about business operations.

This major is intended for business students who wish to gain breadth within their undergraduate studies. It is particularly appropriate for students who wish to combine a study of business with a minor or extended coursework in a non-business field. The general business major is also suitable for students who intend to pursue a specialized master’s degree in business or who are interested in law school or other professional fields.

A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required for admission to the general business major.

Career Opportunities:

Since the general business degree offers students a broad introduction to business, students use this degree as a precursor to pursuing a specialized master’s program. Other career opportunities are in the general management area.
