Office Management

Are you interested in learning a set of skills that are high in demand across many industries? Would you like to be a key player for an organization?

Although often thought of as a support position, office management is an integral part of any organization. To supervisors, managers and executives, these individuals are worth their weight in gold.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

Casper College’s program offers opportunities for traditional and non-traditional students alike. Successful graduates are suited for a wide variety of clerical, office assistant, administrative assistant or executive assistant opportunities depending on the region of the country and the industry they choose for employment.

Student from this program comment about their co-op experience on a regular basis. For this experience, they are placed with a local employer for a real-world office opportunity to develop not only their technological skills but their soft skills as well. Many of these students have been offered jobs within those organizations with which they had their co-op experience.

What’s the difference between the A.A.S. degree program and the certificate? 

  • Although this is an A.A.S. degree, graduates from this program may apply this degree toward an online applied science degree at the University of Wyoming.
  • The certificate provides many of the major courses chosen from the two-year program but is not all inclusive. It is designed to be completed in a shorter period of time and therefore more skill oriented.

“When I became a student at Casper College I just wanted to graduate. However, the growth I experienced outside of academic measure was finding my true self. You are never too old to learn. The instructors at Casper College want their students to succeed at the highest levels, not just graze by. The lessons I am taking away from Casper College go deeper than just the class material.”

— Lori Arr, Casper College graduate, ’14

Compliment your education with a degree or certificate in Accounting and Bookkeeping

Office management and bookkeeping share several topics of expertise and skill sets. In fact, it is common to see office managers broaden their job duties to include bookkeeping and the same is true for bookkeepers that expand their role to include office manager responsibilities.

A.A.S. degrees in both programs will include a combined 82 credit hours.
