The General Business major expands on the strong business foundation developed in the pre-business and upper-division business coursework.  The purpose of the major is to provide an option for students who are limited by work or other obligations in scheduling coursework by allowing students to complete major-related coursework during more flexibly-scheduled evening classes.
