The major in general business is designed to permit students to create a program of interdisciplinary business study from courses offered in the Haile/U.S. Bank College of Business at the 300 level or above that are appropriate to their academic interests and career goals. The general business major may be of particular value to transfer or returning students who prefer a broad overview of business topics as opposed to substantive depth in a particular business discipline.
Internship opportunities are very diverse and are continually being upgraded through the efforts of the department’s professional advisory boards, faculty, and the college’s business experience manager. General business students may choose from a variety of active student organizations that provide outstanding professional networking opportunities at regular meetings and activities. Each year, the department faculty select the outstanding general business student of the year.
The specific career opportunities available for General Business majors are highly dependent upon the courses completed toward their degree. A wide variety of opportunities may be available depending upon the skills they acquire during their degree program.
