Program / Admission Details

Program Description
The Business Administrative Services program provides students with the basic and advanced skills necessary to begin and excel at employment in any business setting. Our core courses provide a well-rounded study of basic office skills in computer applications, accounting, customer service, communication, sales and marketing, and other various support skills. After working through the core courses, students choose an administrative professional or an accounting clerk emphasis. Power skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and project management, are emphasized in each course. Throughout the program, students develop computer skills as they work toward obtaining Microsoft Office certifications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. Students who choose the accounting clerk emphasis will be prepared to take the QuickBooks Certification test. These industry certifications enhance any resume and offer concrete evidence of superior computer and problem-solving skills.
