Hi Nagesh, the two (general business and marketing) can be two of the same, such as the core classes but it is the concentration classes that will differ. For example general business you will focus on the overall business (accounting, business law, economics, finance, int. business, management) and in business marking you will have classes that focus on service marketing, retail, internet marketing, social marketing, international marketing, etc. The best way to find out which suits you the best is to take a class in each, you won't be wasting either class because you will need electives in your degree plan. Hope this helps!

This is a great question. And easy way to understand this is to take a micro-level view: think of a business in your community. To run that business it requires operations, accounting, HR, marketing, IT, etc. While marketing is what you do to promote that business. this includes promotions, public relations, social media, advertising, etc. So, if you major in business, it is going to be a much larger field, while marketing is a subset of that: the promotions part of a business. Depending on which school you go to, they may focus on a hands on approach of business, for example, how to run a business from the ground up. Other schools are more theoretical so you will learn about business theory, international business, economics, etc. same goes for marketing. Hope this helps. Best of luck.
