CURRICULUM GUIDE

Administrative Office Mgmt
Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 1044  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

The Administrative Office Management Program provides Office Administration
graduates and practicing office professionals, as well as those returning to the
workforce after an absence, the opportunity to enhance their skills, increase
their employability, and advance in their careers. The Administrative Office
Management Associate in Business Degree builds on the course work provided in the
Certificate of Achievement and will enhance a student's employment opportunities
in this field. Graduates of the program are prepared to work as an office manager
or administrative supervisor in an office setting. Although specific functions
vary considerably, most office managers establish and monitor office procedures
and policies; coordinate and supervise the work of their staff; evaluate employee
performance; interview, hire, and train new employees; manage long-term projects;
prepare progress and departmental performance reports; order and maintain office
equipment; and generally act as the primary liaison between support staff and
managerial staff. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges. 
Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before
enrolling in any course.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for
skills assessment and advising information.
