Program Overview

The value of earning an Office Administration diploma should prepare students for advanced positions in administrative support roles as well as increase professionalism for future aspirations. The broad curriculum is applicable across many types of professional office environments and responds to the increasing demands of employers for formally trained and modern individuals capable of using electronic record keeping in the workplace. The manager of an office environment may be responsible for the oversight of employees, as well as ensuring efficient productivity through integrated software, oral and written communication, analysis and coordination of office duties and systems, and other support topics.

Students of Lenoir Community College’s Office Administration diploma program may use the additional education to become professionals in management and leadership positions. The program is comprised of 47 credit hours and builds on previous experiences while also introducing advanced topics of word processing, payroll accounting, spreadsheet composition, electronic record management, office management, publication design, and business law foundations. The focused curriculum develops the roles required to align resources, and to improve communication and productivity. The diploma may serve as the necessary credentials for immediate entry into administration positions, or as the refresher program for individuals needing to gain modern skills in office administration.

Leading an office requires a professional with an innate ability to combine a strategic balance of planning, organizing, staffing and controlling an organization. Completion of the diploma should give students the skills to apply the learned administration concepts to current or future office settings and in the fields of construction, information technology, the hospitality industry, non-profit and for-profit organizations, human resources, healthcare, and retail sales.
