School of Business – The General Education Component

The general education component of the program is driven by the philosophy in the University’s common curriculum where three interrelated educational goals are established:

  • Discovering and acquiring knowledge of the world and the place of the individual in it;
  • Identifying and developing personal and social values and goals; and
  • Developing and refining skills, abilities, and ways of knowing.
