The main aim of this programme is to provide a level of training consistent with the changing demands of today’s work environment and the high standard of performance required by employers of their administrative support staff at middle and senior management levels. Therefore, much of the emphasis of this programme is on management and organisational practices, computerised applications and the administration of office systems and procedures.
This programme will be offered on a full-time basis over two years. The teaching methods will consist of lectures, lab sessions and the use of student-centred participatory techniques such as case studies, seminar presentations, role play, simulation, group learning, problem-solving and decision-making activities. Seminar presentations will enable students to carry out independent research and build on knowledge gained during lectures. Experiential learning will be provided by a 4-6 week practicum, on which a course work assignment will be based.
