The Administrative Office Management graduate will have competency in the following skills: word processing, database, spreadsheet, and presentation software; business and technical document keyboard and transcription; calculator, records management system, and multi-line telephones; manual and electronic accounting procedures; use of supervisory management principles and management tasks; personnel hiring, training, and evaluating; understanding of desktop publishing and computer graphics software; office communications and reports preparation; and professional website creation and maintenance. The program also contains an internship that often leads to fulltime employment.
Administrative Office Management students are excited about the prospect of working in an office setting. Helpful prior training may include computer, keyboarding, English, and basic math; however, the first year of the program allows students without prior training an opportunity to learn these skills. An administrative office manager is often the center of an office, providing support and organization for other employees.
