General Business allows students to build a curriculum around one of more than a hundred possible minors in and outside of the E. J. Ourso College of Business. This curriculum allows students to turn their passion into their degree as they select a minor and courses that make sense for their personal career goals.

The Bachelor of Science with a General Business major is a 120-hour degree program. Learning objectives for students will vary, depending upon the minor they select to complete. All students will gain valuable insight and basic knowledge in key areas of accounting, economics, finance, information systems & decision sciences, management, and marketing.

To qualify for a bachelor of science with a general business major, a candidate must:

  • Satisfy all the degree requirements of the E. J. Ourso College of Business;
  • Obtain approval from the general business undergraduate advisor on the general business courses; and
  • Complete a minor in an area other than business administration. The minor requirements will be defined by the minor department.
