Program Overview

The information manager is a highly skilled support information specialist able to operate, implement, manage, evaluate, and direct the everyday operation of the information processing center of an organization. The electronic office uses an integrated system which enables data to be electronically communicated throughout the organization. Thus, it requires personnel capable of integrating a variety of computerized equipment and possessing skills in word processing, spreadsheet development, data management, web page management, electronic mail, desktop publishing, personnel management, and office administration. In addition to the basics, graduates of the Computer Application and Administrative Management program will gain proficiency with the new technologies, developing the ability to utilize them to efficiently carry out office tasks. The curriculum is designed to train and educate individuals to use electronic office technology to its full potential.

Students have the option of concentrating in accounting systems, help desk support or media applications.

Classes in the program are scheduled during the day, evening and on-line to facilitate both full-time and part-time enrollments.
