You have a passion, but you want to give yourself options. The General Business program empowers students to blaze an academic path tailored to their interests. It provides you with the fundamental skills to pursue your passion, as a doctor or artist for example, while still preparing you for a business-related career.
  • The program produces creative problem solvers and graduates who easily adapt to the dynamic needs of our global society.

What Will You Learn?

  • What do you want to learn? The General Business curriculum includes the core business subjects, an internship or study abroad opportunity, and a minor from another discipline outside the business school. This gives you the flexibility to define yourself according to your vision of the future, while grounding you in global business knowledge usable in any future you choose.

What Will You Learn?

The General Business graduate possesses the skills needed to achieve success in many areas, including:

  • The business side of the field they choose as a minor
  • Business management
  • Healthcare administration
  • Law
  • Founders of a small business
  • The general business major will be a more broad-based program than our specialized majors (e.g., marketing or finance) to educate students and provide a solid understanding of business fundamentals. The scope of the major encompasses all facets of business and provides students with a wider scope of analysis across the business functional areas. Graduates are expected to work in business environments that require more diverse skills across the many areas of business. Graduates are expected to be general managers in medium and large businesses, and start or work in small or family-owned businesses in the state, region, and world. The major encourages students to pursue experiences, either internationally or in a work setting, and requires a minor from one of the other schools or colleges at the University of Mississippi to promote well-rounded and developed students for the demands of a diverse work environment.
