A broad and flexible degree, General Business Management offers many career options.

What are recent graduates doing now?

One recent graduate works for Target. She began as a business analyst, which is a typical entry-level position at this company. As she progressed through the career development plan developed by Target, she quickly assumed increased responsibilities. Within two years she was signing purchase requisitions for millions of dollars. She loves the responsibility she has been given and the clear path of progression open to her as she successfully performs her assigned duties.

Learning opportunities outside of the classroom:

Internships. Because St. Thomas is located in the heart of a thriving business community, there are many opportunities for internships. Companies such as Target, Best Buy and 3M regularly employ our business students in a variety of work assignments.

Study abroad. With a global business marketplace, study abroad opportunities give students the chance to experience different cultures. From these experiences they bring a multicultural aspect to their organizational experiences. Moreover, study abroad helps students grow and learn about themselves, an important process for any leader or manager.

Faculty at work

Members of the Management Department are actively engaged in consulting with local and regional businesses. This keeps them current with the latest business practices, which they integrate into their teaching. They also are conducting research in areas such as human resource strategy, student intercultural development resulting from studying abroad, mid-career development and intercultural team development.
