General Business Management
Arm yourself with business knowledge that leaves your options open. The General Business Management concentration consists of the core business courses that all students majoring in business at St. Thomas are required to take, regardless of their specialization. Choosing this route for your major therefore gives you an understanding of the fundamentals of business without emphasizing a particular business discipline.
What You Study
General Business Management offers the greatest degree of flexibility in setting up a personalized program of study. Because our curriculum includes fewer required courses, you will have more opportunities to select electives: you can taken them all in one department, giving you a strong secondary concentration or a minor, or you can form a mix of related electives to pursue varied interests.
You can also combine General Business Management with a major from another department outside the Opus College of Business to earn a double major, such as computer science, economics or a foreign language. There is also a plan of study for students interested in combining this degree with a B.S. in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.
