Computers are the foundation of today's business world and the Office Management program combines traditional office skills with the latest in computer technology and software. Graduates from either the Administrative Office Management or Medical Office Management concentrations acquire the skills to sit for the Microsoft Office Specialist exams. 

The two-year Associate Degree concentrations enable the student to become a valuable asset to the business office or the medical office through intensive skill-based courses. Students learn the latest version of business software including Microsoft Office Suite, Microsoft Publisher and QuickBooks Pro.

The Office Assistant Certificate, Administrative Concentration, which can be earned in one year, is available for the student who wants to acquire basic office skills including word processing, spreadsheets, and accounting. The certificate program allows students to transfer credits into the degree program.

Health Considerations

The college must ensure that clients, patients or medical information are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in office or clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize client/patient/medical information responsibilities or be removed from placement. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships with employers, clients/patients and their families.

Students must also be aware that site placement might require criminal background checks, proof of insurances, general health statements from personal providers, as well as additional titers or vaccinations beyond what the college requires. Students must successfully complete a drug screening.
