Are you interested in learning a set of skills that are not industry specific but are in high demand?  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.  Successful graduates are suited for a wide variety of office assistant, administrative assistant, executive assistant, or lower management opportunities depending on the region of the country and the industry they choose for employment.  Students completing this degree will have the technical, industry and business skills for a professional position in a variety of industries.  This degree offers opportunities for traditional and non-traditional students alike and establishes a solid background for additional opportunities within an organization.

This is an online degree so if you are currently employed or cannot come to campus to take classes, this is the degree that will help elevate you in your current career or give you the skills necessary to start a new career.  Although this is an Associate of Applied Science degree, graduates from this program may apply this degree toward an online four-year applied science degree at the University of Wyoming.
