List of Commercial Courses in Universities (Warnings Included)

If you're a secondary school student with a commercial background, it's important to be aware that when applying for admission to a university, your course choices should be limited to the fields of management or social sciences. 


Many students may not be familiar with the diverse range of options available beyond the well-known social science courses like Accounting, Banking and Finance, and Business Administration. Surprisingly, there is a multitude of courses awaiting your consideration.

Warnings! Don't Mistake The Following Courses For Commercial or Management

It's important not to confuse certain courses with social science options. Over the years, I've observed that some students have mistakenly categorized a few courses as commercial when, in reality, they belong to the science category.


This confusion often arises due to the presence of words like "management" or related terms in the course names. To avoid this misconception, please take note of the following courses, which are not within the commercial or social science domain:


  1. Estate Management (Science)
  2. Statistics (Science)
  3. Forestry & Wildlife Management (Science)
  4. Home Economics (Science)


Keep these distinctions in mind as you make informed decisions about your academic path.
