General Business Administration professionals plan and coordinate the activities of others, as well as doing hands-on work themselves. As a general manager, you will have a broad portfolio and varied challenges. You might combine day-to-day operations with special projects, personnel decisions, customer relations, and budgeting. General management roles can also include a significant marketing component to build revenues.
Our curriculum prepares you for responsible roles close to the action. The management curriculum emphasizes key skills:
- leading project teams
- negotiating win-win solutions
- time management
- event planning
- keeping a big picture perspective on operational issues
Frequent oral presentations sharpen your ability to communicate ideas. Our collegiate DECA chapter builds students' analytical and presentation skills through projects and regional competitions.
The General Business Administration major prepares you for environments that require initiative, professionalism, and the ability to work independently. These particularly include service organizations and small- to medium-sized companies. Jobs include line or staff positions in health care organizations, banking, retail, transportation, and human resources.
