General Business Concentration

Get a taste of it all. The general business concentration allows students to learn about all traditional business fields through its broad, diverse curriculum. Students are required to take advanced accounting, economics, finance, marketing and management electives in addition to other required coursework.

The program best suits:

  • students who have well-defined career goals and objectives that do not fit the traditional lines of study.
  • students who are interested in being entrepreneurs. (Students graduating with a general business concentration will be prepared to handle all aspects of a company, from financial to managerial.)
  • students who are not sure what direction they want to take. (The fundamentals taught in business administration courses are valuable in every career, even if it isn’t a traditional business career.)

Multinational Business Concentration

Break cultural barriers. The multinational business concentration prepares students to handle the special issues encountered in conducting business across national borders. Students learn how to meet the challenges of language, culture and legal differences that exist when conducting business between two or more countries. Upon graduation, students are ready to take on roles as liaisons and managers who handle international issues either within the company or between the company and its vendors or customers. The curriculum combines foreign language, government and business courses.  Students enrolled in the Multinational Business Concentration must schedule one of the Study Abroad trips as a requirement of their degree.

Nicholls State University currently offers both French and Spanish courses through its Department of Languages and Literature. If they wish, students may also choose to minor in either French or Spanish. Visit the Department of Languages and Literature for details on foreign language course offerings.

Pre-Law Concentration

Learn the art of negotiation. The pre-law concentration focuses on the issues that are most important for success in law school and a subsequent career in law.

Although the concentration is designed for students who plan to attend law school, it can also be effective for anyone who is interested in the many areas of business that involve contracts, negotiation and analytical skills. A combination of business and government courses prepares students for future careers as attorneys or as staff members in the legislature or legal departments.

In the fall of their senior year, prospective law school students should take the Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT). Students should take the LSAT by December for admission to law school the following fall semester. For more information on testing dates and sample exam questions, visit the LSAT website.
