The Business Administration (General Business) major is designed for students who
have a keen interest in learning the skills necessary to succeed in business. It also
permits the student with unique career objectives to select courses aimed at meeting
this specific need. The major has a progressive and relative course design that enables
students to learn the major areas within an organization and create a broad search
for career opportunities upon graduation.
Classes such as accounting, statistics, management, marketing, and finance, among others, will prepare students for the essential areas within business. So no matter what industry a student may be interested in upon graduation, a degree in general business will have prepared him or her for the next step.
The general business program at JU provides the basic foundations for entry-level management positions in a broad range of industries.
