Informational Sessions

Saturday Business ProgramThe University of South Carolina Beaufort is preparing to enroll its next cohort of students in the NOW Business Degree Plan, a unique path to a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration that enables nontraditional students to complete course requirements largely by attending classes at Night, Online and Weekends. 

Attending NOW Business degree classes allows students to focus on work and family during the week. Highly interactive classroom sessions foster engagement and encourage adult learners to share real-world experiences. Students advance from class to class as a cohort and may earn a bachelor’s degree in less than two years, although most require more time to graduate.  To qualify, the student must be accepted by the university as a transfer student and have completed College English and College Algebra.   As an added plus, residents of Chatham, Effingham and Bryan counties in Georgia pay the less costly in-state tuition.

“The program was developed to give an additional level of access to individuals wanting to earn a Business degree,” says Dr. Peter E. Swift, a senior instructor of Business Management and coordinator of the NOW Business Degree Plan. “With its complete business-management approach, the curriculum emphasizes leadership, business operations, ethics, social responsibility and strategic thinking. The course of study focuses on key business functions such as marketing, finance and operations, and fosters a better understanding of crucial management issues—leadership, human resources, innovation and strategic management.”
