The business major is designed to give students a broad business foundation. The business core coursework exposes students to all of the functional areas of a business operation. Students are afforded the flexibility to set their upper-level electives from each of the other business majors: accounting, finance, management, and marketing. General business is a popular major for those students seeking a comprehensive business education and who wish to tailor their curriculum to match their business interests.

The versatility of a general business major positions graduates to pursue a wide variety of career paths in business. The major also appeals to students who are considering an advanced degree.
