Miami University Regionals Add Bachelor's in Commerce

Have you ever dreamt of managing a small business or starting one of your own? Did you know that 99.7 percent of companies are "small businesses"?

Miami University's Middletown and other regional campuses have introduced a new Bachelor of Science in Commerce. This curriculum expansion resulted from the culmination of a study of the region's business needs. "Better equipping small business managers and owners and preparing future business owners in our region was an area of need that we could help meet," says Dr. G. Michael Pratt, associate provost and dean of Miami's College of Professional Studies and Applied Sciences.

The BSC degree is designed for all learners—freshmen, transfers, adults, associate degree holders and military veterans—and includes an in-depth examination of small businesses as well as courses in traditional areas such as accounting, management and marketing. For detailed information: www.regionals.miamioh.edu/bsc.
