  • Course description
    General Business courses and faculty are dispersed throughout the various business schools . The General Business Emphasis prepares students for a wide variety of careers in business, the management of small or family-owned businesses and graduate study in business administration.
    Students complete coursework in each of the functional areas of business: accounting, finance, computer information systems, management and marketing. The General Business Emphasis is designed to prepare students for a broad range of entry-level positions in business organizations. The program is not intended to provide specialized study. The broad-based nature of the curriculum makes the General Business program appropriate for students intending to manage a family-owned or small business.

    The program consists of three parts:
    1. Liberal Arts Core (LAC) Credits
    2. Required Major Credits
    3. University-Wide Credits

    Program Requirements:
    • In addition to fulfilling the basic requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration students must attain at least a grade of "C-" or better in the Required Emphasis Credits and Elective Emphasis Credits in order to count towards graduation.
    • A cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or better must be earned in the Required Emphasis Credits and Elective Emphasis Credits categories in order for the course to count toward graduation. With the written approval of the Dean, students may make the following course substitutions:
    - Students may substitute a senior-level Special Topics course for a required emphasis course with the same prefix.
    - Students with a 3.0 or higher GPA may substitute BAMG 407/BAMK 407 Small Business Counseling for any approved BAMG or BAMK required emphasis course.
    - BA 495 Special Topics or any Executive Professor class may be substituted for a General Business elective with the approval of the Dean.
