The General Business Administration major is designed for those who wish to develop a broad understanding of business fields (Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing), rather than focusing on a specific one. In particular, those who want to become business generalists or entrepreneurs and those who are interested in starting or managing small to medium-sized businesses may pursue the General Business Administration major.
The curriculum for the General Business Administration major is designed to provide a better flexibility that allows students to choose courses in the disciplines of Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing based on their interest.
Successful completion of the General Business Administration major will enable you to approach a business situation from a problem-solving perspective: abstract key issues to be addressed in the situation, identify relevant business knowledge and options suitable for the situation, critically analyze these options, and make a clear written and oral recommendation.
