Professional Studies In Office Administration - Certificate Of Achievement

About the Program

As businesses continue to evolve and work with increasingly complex technology, the need for advanced training and professional certification becomes more important every day.

Office professionals are the core of most businesses. Without competent assistants, executive administrators, bookkeepers, and office managers, most companies would be unable to function. Office professionals keep the office organized and running smoothly and work with much of the valuable data that a company needs to flourish.

The Professional Studies in Office Administration Certificate was created for the individual who is already working in an office setting and wants to apply new learning to the workplace. It provides an opportunity to upgrade your present skills and acquire new competencies.

Why Delta?

This is a program designed specifically with the working office professional in mind. This certificate offers a flexible “menu” approach to course selection to enhance your professional development. Choose from 3 to 9 credits from each category – communications, office management or technology. A total of 18 credits is required.

Careers and Job Outlook

Opportunities will continue to be best for those office and administrative support worker supervisors and managers who show leadership and team building skills, and who are able to multitask, communicate well, and keep abreast of technological advances.

State of Michigan average yearly earnings is $32,700.
