Description

Administrative Assistants are essential employees in almost every organization and must possess a wide range of skills such as flexibility, adaptability, problem solving, decision making and time management as well as strong knowledge of the business environment, administrative policies and computer use for business purposes.

During our intensive ten-month program, experienced instructors prepare students for a wide range of positions in office administration with advanced skills in Microsoft Office, effective business communication techniques, financial record keeping, data management, and integral office procedures.

Students will also have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned during a six-week practicum experience with one of our host companies which helps prepare students for transitioning from the classroom to employment.

Work Practicum

The Business Administrative Assistant program features a Work Practicum placement in a local business/office which provides students with on-the-job training and experience. Students will apply skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills through working within an actual employer’s facility with a 6-week work practicum at the end of the program.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
