Program Description

The General Business major is intended for students who prefer a diversified business background without extensive concentration in any single field. It is intentionally designed to give the student maximum flexibility in course selection and to equip its graduates with multi-career adaptability. Students interested in pursing a career with a large corporation, government or their own business are provided with an in-depth exposure to several disciplines. The general nature of the major also makes it appropriate for students planning to enter law school.
