General Business

In our General Business Concentration, you’ll gain a solid foundation in the principles of business – from economics and marketing to management and finance. This concentration within the Business Administration program is an ideal choice for students who want to develop a broad base of knowledge for a wide range of business careers, rather than focus in on one career area.

You’ll conduct case studies, run computer simulations, perform analytics, and complete real projects for real clients. This concentration prepares students to identify key issues facing an organization, formulate possible solutions, research and evaluate alternatives, and lead effectively.
