Overview

This is a two-year (4 semester) program comprised of the Office Administration Certificate Program (two semesters) and one year of the Office Management Diploma Program (two semesters).

The modern office has changed considerably and not only with technology. Roles have changed and often job delineations have been blurred. There is a need for trained administrative management. The expectations of employers and the range of skills required in the office have increased.

Through this program, we offer opportunities for those who want the practical office skills combined with administrative and management training with a focus on human resource management competencies.

Possible careers include Assistant to Executive/Manager, Office Manager, Administrative Assistant, supervisory level positions, small business owner, and/or other positions in middle management.
