The Bachelors of Science Degree in Commerce is a unique University of Arizona South degree. The B.S. in Commerce is different from a traditional business program in that the Commerce program at UA South provides a complete overview of the business world rather than a focus on just one aspect of business, such as accounting or marketing. Students learn the theoretical components of commerce, and practice the application of those theoretical components in a simulated commerce environment in order to develop your commerce skills and constantly work on building a commerce persona. The commerce program allows students to finish in just five semesters of coursework. Classes meet one night a week, providing a high degree of flexibility for students enrolled in the Commerce program.
