B.B.A. in General Business


The general business major is a more broad-based program than our specialized majors (e.g., marketing or finance) and focuses on building 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 while allowing them the opportunity to study in areas across the university. The major encourages students to pursue experiences, either internationally or in a work setting, and is extremely flexible, allowing students to pursue an outside minor or any curriculum they believe is most interesting and will support their development.
