The BSBA in General Business program at Nichols College is designed to be tailored to students’ individual interests. With over 10 concentrations to choose from, students can pursue the aspect of business that most interests them. At Nichols, we develop leaders and innovators that graduate prepared to work in the global market. Our business faculty are experts in their fields who invest in their students—helping ensure they go on to pursue successful careers in business.

Whether you’re thinking of joining your family’s business or starting your own, you can also pursue a certificate in entrepreneurship, which consists of 12 credits and pairs with any other undergraduate program at Nichols, including the General Business major.

General Business Curriculum

To keep our business program dynamic and career-focused, we make sure our students can customize their program of study to suit their career goals. Nichols allows business majors to choose three concentrations from the following options:  

  • Accounting
  • Business Communication
  • Criminal Justice Management
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Hospitality Management
  • Human Resource Management
  • International Business
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Sport Management 

The curriculum for the General Business major overlaps with courses in other programs, given the wide-range of specializations. General Business majors must complete 121 credit hours (approximately 40 courses), including core classes, as well as focused electives and the required courses for their chosen specializations.

General Business Careers & Internships

We call this our general business major because it is flexible and prepares students for a variety of careers. For example, the Accounting, Economics, and Finance specializations prepare students for careers involving analytics, theories, and quantitative problem-solving. On the other hand, the Management and International Business specializations prepare students for careers that require solid critical thinking and communication skills.  

Nichols helps place business students in prestigious internships with companies like Target, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and Hudson RPM Distributors. You’ll have the chance to network with successful alumni and get your resumé workshopped. By the time they graduate, our students are confident and well-rounded leaders.
