Overview

This program contains courses that will give the student an understanding of business fundamentals without emphasizing a particular area, such as accounting or marketing. With this concentration, the student will be described as a generalist, with a broad business base. Because fewer courses are required in this concentration, there is more room for elective courses. These elective courses may be taken in one department, giving a strong secondary academic concentration or a minor, or they can be related courses from different departments (e.g., management marketing, finance). Note: a minimum of 76 credits outside the Opus College of Business are required for graduation.

Job titles of recent graduates with a general business concentration include business analyst, business consultant, account executive, service consultant, commodity manager, account analyst, customer service representative, merchandise coordinator, and marketing assistant.
