MATC to Offer New Administrative Assistant Degree This Fall

June 16, 2009

Milwaukee Area Technical College will offer an accelerated administrative assistant associate degree program beginning this fall at its Oak Creek Campus, 6665 S. Howell Ave. Designed for adults with current or recent work experience, students may be able to get credit for past work experience. Participants will be able to earn their associate degrees as in as little as 16 months, with classes meeting year round.

 

Most classes run for six weeks and meet Tuesdays from 5:30-9:30 p.m., beginning Sept. 1. The program is designed to offer students the chance to spend less time in class and more time in independent study. Students will develop critical leadership, technology and team skills; and will have the opportunity to learn and study with other experienced workers. The new degree is part of MATC’s Fastrak Program which offers accelerated business degrees.

 

Administrative assistant and executive secretary positions are among the occupations expected to be among those with the largest numbers of new jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-2009. Projected growth in jobs for executive assistants and administrative assistants is expected to grow 15 percent from 2006 to 2016; while the category for secretaries and administrative assistants is expected to grow by nine percent for the same time period. The Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-2009 states, “Secretaries and administrative assistants today perform fewer clerical tasks and are increasingly taking on the roles of information and communication managers.”

Approximately 48,000 students per year attend the college’s four campuses, numerous evening centers and community-based sites, or learn online.
