WITC to offer administrative professional associate degree online

Amy Pozniak, WITC-Superior administrative professional and business graphics instructor works with Jessica Eberl. The administrative professional program is now offered entirely online.

(4/18/11): Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College now offers a two-year administrative professional associate degree that will be completely online for the 2011 fall semester.

“WITC received many requests from students to provide the program online,” said academic dean Leslie Bleskachek. “This recognizes the need for full-time employees to have an option to enroll, even if they are working during the day and can’t attend day classes. A degree in this program can often be a stepping stone into higher levels within organizations after initial placement.”

The administrative professional program will continue to be offered in a classroom setting with the first year available at any of WITC’s four main campuses. The second year is offered at the Ashland and Rice Lake locations.

For individuals currently working in an office setting who want to have the credentialing necessary to move into a decision-making position or enhance a current skill set, this program offers tremendous advantages.

 “This program is the perfect fit for the working professional wanting to update or learn the latest software and technology,” said Amy Pozniak, WITC-Superior administrative professional and business graphics instructor. “It is also a good fit for someone who has a passion for technology and software applications, the ability to multitask, and enjoys working with the public.”

The administrative professional program prepares individuals with the software and hardware, administrative and interpersonal skills needed to perform the duties of administrative support personnel. The second year of the program allows students the flexibility of increasing skills in either communications or software applications. With additional education or work experience, there is opportunity for graduates to advance into supervisory or managerial positions.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, administrative assistants will have among the largest number of job openings due to the growth and the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or advance.
