B.B.A. in General Business
The general business major will be a more broad-based program than our specialized majors (e.g., marketing or finance) to educate students and provide a solid understanding of business fundamentals. The scope of the major encompasses all facets of business and provides students with a wider scope of analysis across the business functional areas. Graduates are expected to work in business environments that require more diverse skills across the many areas of business. Graduates are expected to be general managers in medium and large businesses, and start or work in small or family-owned businesses in the state, region, and world. The major encourages students to pursue experiences, either internationally or in a work setting, and requires a minor from one of the other schools or colleges at the University of Mississippi to promote well-rounded and developed students for the demands of a diverse work environment.
