Bachelor of Science in Business with a Concentration in General Business

For students wishing to pursue a broad, general degree program, this curriculum provides a vehicle for organizing their studies. The integrating focus is the responsibility for administering the multiple operations of the business firm in a rapidly changing environment. Emphasis is on the process involved in setting goals for corporate effort, coordinating and controlling multiple programs, and regulating inputs and outputs with varied environments.

Objectives at the undergraduate level are to provide a broad, liberal education as a base and to develop proficiency in understanding and solving interrelated business problems.


Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
