Administrative Professional

Administrative Professional

Associate in Applied Science (AAS)

The roles and responsibilities of an administrative professional have changed over the years—way beyond answering the phone and scheduling meetings.

Are you highly organized, detail-oriented, and interested in new technology? MSTC’s Administrative Professional program teaches you the skills you need to be well-prepared for the workforce. Employers hire MSTC administrative professionals because graduates are highly skilled, hard-working, and adaptable.

As an administrative professional, you will not only prepare correspondence and work with clients, you will manage administrative projects, maintain internal and external relationships, plan events, and apply your technology skills to business and administrative tasks. Administrative professional students experience hands-on learning through clothing drives, organization of etiquette luncheons, and high profile event planning.

The Administrative Professional program is offered at Wisconsin Rapids Campus. The first year of the program is available at the Adams County Center and the Marshfield and Stevens Point campuses.
