Three new programs. Each can be completed in 7 to 10 months. Sales Management, Human Resource Administration and Administrative Assistant. Let us know which one is right for you.
After meeting with area employers, we added new programs to our area of study to meet local employment needs.
Sales Management Diploma Program
Online – 7 Months
Students will be given an opportunity to learn about business and professional communication, selling, consumer behavior, negotiating, marketing, advertising, retail management, and operations and merchandise management. This program emphasizes the importance of utilizing strategies to communicate effectively with customers and to develop strategies for selling and marketing.
Human Resource Administration Diploma Program
Online – 10 Months
We included courses in the skills needed for job-ready Human Resource employees. These include Microsoft courses, Human Resource Management, Staffing and Hiring Process, Managing Change, Strategic Compensation, Employee Benefits Design, Risk Management and additional core courses.
Upon successful completion of the program, you have the ability to sit for the Professional in Human Resources (aPHR ®) certification exam to become an even more valuable prospective employee.
Professional Administrative Assistant Diploma Program
Online and On-Campus – 7 Months
You only spend two and a half (2.5) hours (from 6PM-8:30PM) every Monday - Thursday at school. Other components are completed online.
In the midst of a bustling office's chaos, the administrative assistant can be the most valuable employee. Handling the constant stream of paperwork and customer concerns, the administrative assistant frees up personnel to perform their own duties without additional burden.
Employers typically require job candidates to have one to two years of related work experience, but our diploma program meets this qualification. Once you graduate from the program, our career services team could forward your name to the area employers who requested we develop this program to help you find the perfect position.
