Business Office Technology

(575) 527-7579

Because today’s business world is constantly being transformed by new information processing technologies, employment opportunities in office careers are on the rise. The smooth functioning of today’s automated office depends on the support of well-trained administrative, accounting, legal office and medical office assistants.

If you find satisfaction in working as a team member, are well organized, and enjoy meeting and helping new people, Business Office Technology could be the right program for you. This program has some significant advantages: it not only allows you to specialize in an area of interest to you, but it also provides a fast track to an entry-level position. Students may obtain a general office assistant certificate of completion in as little as one year and then begin earning money while studying for their associate degree.

By studying a second year toward the associate degree in Business Office Technology, you can prepare for a more challenging position as either a general administrative assistant, accounting assistant, legal office assistant, or medical office assistant. You will learn to use state-of-the-art microcomputers, become familiar with various up-to-date software applications, and become proficient in a specific area of study.

Because our region values bilingual (Spanish/English) skills in the workplace, students already possessing ability in Spanish have the opportunity to enroll in two courses to further enhance their Spanish communication skills. These courses are part of the Bilingual Office Specialist Certificate.
