Office Administration Executive Program Includes Various Practical Applications

You want the post-secondary program you attend to have reputable standing in the field and among professionals who will eventually hire you. The more respected and well known the program, the more likely it is that an employer will be familiar with the type of education you received and trust that you will be able to complete tasks professionally and efficiently.

“From the students who participate in the executive work placement program to the employees we have hired through the school, we are proud to be associated with Centennial College’s Office Administration program,” says David Lipton, President of SQM of the Office Admin – Executive offering.

This testimonial clearly demonstrates the type of standing this offering has among its peers. But just what has given it such a good reputation? A combination of theory and hands-on practice is one of the most beneficial aspects of the program. It ensures that students are able to handle all of the
functions performed by administrative assistants who work with upper-level management. Secondly, students get to apply what they have learned to the real world during a field placement that not only allows them to experience their field but also to build their professional network.

Here are some of the beneficial courses of this offering.

Financial Procedures:
Because dealing with finances is a part of any business, students become familiar with the various financial documents that they will encounter in business and personal life, and learn how a spreadsheet can facilitate their preparation.

Word Processing Applications:
Practical application is an ideal way to get students to retain information. This course includes lectures, discussions, speed and accuracy drills, and production assignments to teach students intermediate skills to operate and utilize word processing software in order to produce enhanced business documents, gain communications and critical thinking skills, and to progressively increase keyboarding proficiency to produce a variety of business documents with speed and accuracy.

Integrated Software Applications:
The integration of word processing, spreadsheet, database and presentation software to share, embed, and link data between applications are all taught in this offering. Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint) are used as a testing tool.

Office Procedures and Communications:
There are common procedures and techniques used by businesses. This course teaches students these methods though lectures, demonstrations, exercises, group work, simulations and a series of quizzes. As a result, students gain teamwork skills, exercise critical thinking skills, and recognition of acceptable standards of performance and behaviour in a business setting.

Executive Office Procedures 1 and 2:
Split into two courses, this aspect of the program prepares students to organize time and work, practice communications and public relations skills, and become familiar with technology and procedures for a career as an administrative assistant. The second course, meanwhile, reinforces students’ administrative skills and knowledge of executive office procedures through realistic, practical, and meaningful experiences.

As grads of one of the most respected office administrator schools, Centennial College learners are able to launch careers as administrative assistants, administrative support officers, senior secretaries and executive secretaries.
