Business Careers offers students the opportunity to learn accounting, office, and computer applications with an emphasis on interactive lab and "hands-on" activities. Students will be able to broaden their understanding of business, office, finance, medical, legal, and accounting principles and practices, and increase their skills through practical applications using both simulated and actual accounting data. Students can earn job title certificates in a variety of areas including: Office XP - Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint; Medical and Legal Office Specialist, Data Entry, Accounting Clerk, and Business and Personal Finance Specialist. General business and office procedures are practiced on a daily basis to help prepare students for the school-to-work transition.
When qualified, students may apply for entry-level positions utilizing our co-op and work experience placement services. All students rotate through a two-week Front Desk-Office Assistant training which includes taking attendance, answering the phone, taking phone and voice messages, processing and stamping mail, copying, filing, sending and receiving faxes, and training the next student to take over the front desk responsibilities.
