USCB Bachelors of Science Degree in Business on Saturdays BLUFFTON, SC (April 2, 2015) –
 The University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) will be holding an informational session for its Saturday Business Degree program on April 22, 2015 at 6 p.m., in Room 123 in the Science and Technology Building on the University’s Hilton Head Gateway Campus located in Bluffton, SC.  The program offers individuals and nontraditional students additional access and convenience by offering Saturday classes. Students who complete the program earn a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration from USCB, which is an accredited four-year public university.
 
The Saturday Business Degree option is geared towards individuals who might have work and family obligations during the week but want to finish their degree. To qualify for consideration, students must have prior college level courses completed and meet the admissions requirements of the University.
 
The program fosters engagement and encourages adult learners to share their real-world experiences through highly interactive classroom sessions. Students advance from class to class as a cohort, and can earn a bachelor’s degree in less than two years, although many progress at their own pace.
 
“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 Saturday 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.”
 
With one of the lowest tuition rates in the region, USCB offers in-state tuition to Georgia residents who live in the Savannah area (Chatham, Effingham, and Bryan counties). The University also works with members and veterans of the military to accommodate their needs.
