Despite the fact that today's companies are increasingly dependent on modern technology, the role of Office Administrative Assistants has become more important than ever before. Automation and departmental restructuring have resulted in the administrative assistant taking on job duties previously reserved for managerial employees. Businesses are seeking professionals who can efficiently organize, manage and distribute information while also adhering to the ethical policies of the organization.
NCC prepares students to meet the challenges of managing the workload in a business office by providing training in database management, word processing, building spreadsheets, presenting graphics, accounting, communications, conducting research, and employee management. Administrative assistants must be critical thinkers and problem-solvers, and function as the glue that holds an office together. The administrative professional becomes a key player through whom all pertinent information flows.
A valuable internship experience caps off the credit program. Students may also graduate with a specialized diploma as an office skills specialist.
