General Business


General Business is the study of basic principles, concepts and the language of organizations. The General Business AS Degree focuses on employment preparation. This program was not developed to be transferable to a four-year university. Changing academic goals will generally require additional courses, consult with a counselor for further information.


Career paths chosen by students pursuing the General Business AS Degree include not only entry level general business positions. The program provides the flexibility for students to pursue other more specialized interests in business. These would include areas like finance, human resources, hospitality, information technology and public administration. Even students who choose not to major in General Business find that coursework in the field can improve their ability to think critically, problem-solve, manage their lives, and understand the business issues that engage our world, our country, and our communities.
