Program Description

This program provides you with relevant administrative and high-level technological skills to meet the demands of the current and emerging business environment.

As a student in the program, you will master in three consecutive semesters (12 months), the skills and knowledge traditionally offered in a four-semester program. In the first semester, you'll acquire a solid foundation of business office procedures and intermediate-level computer skills.

The final two semesters specialize in Executive Office Administration with advanced-level computer skills and accounting. You will use your well-developed literacy skills in every course as you interpret detailed instructions, both verbal and written, and prepare documents, letters, and reports. Your fluency in English is critical for your success and there is a high focus on communicating effectively from the beginning of your program to graduation. Workplace simulations assist you in transferring the learned skills and knowledge to the work environment. Computer skills and business office practices are also readily transferable to other academic and career paths.

Finally, you'll complete the program and access the job market at non-traditional times.
