Program Overview

In a competitive, pressure-filled world, executives need to make the most of their time. Executive administrative professionals help executives at the top levels of companies and organizations stay at the top of their game. We coordinate schedules, manage communications, keep track of finances, record meeting minutes, prepare documents and presentations for meetings, and anything else executives need. Executive assistants are a cross between a project manager, office administrator, and strategic ally.

You’ll learn skills in word processing, data entry, spreadsheets, and accounting software applications, as well as how to create multi-media presentations and professional-quality publications. Our training and workplace experience will also provide you with expert problem-solving, managerial, and interpersonal skills. Senior executives are always looking for qualified administrative professionals who are key in their productivity and indispensable to their team.
