Business and commerce programs are commonly offered within a larger college or university setting. Typically, a four-year undergraduate degree is a required admission prerequisite. Some programs are offered as two-year associate's degrees.
The typical curriculum of a business and commerce program includes courses in accounting, economics, finance, and human resources. These courses work to provide a foundation in general business principles.
As the program advances, students elect classes targeting specific field(s) of interest. Internships providing real-life experience may also be offered. The objective is to prepare students to confidently enter today’s complex business environment.
Degree completion normally requires two academic years. The designation conferred upon graduation is Masters of Business Administration (MBA), or Associates of Business Administration.
