Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AA degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

Associate of Applied Science - Business Office Administration

Behind every successful business is an administrative assistant, or a team of administrative assistants and other office support personnel who organize the everyday activities to help run an organization smoothly and effi­ciently. Do you enjoy working with people, multiple tasks, data and information, technology, and event coordination all in the same day? With online classes, we can prepare you to be a business office professional.

Program Information

The MACC Business O­ffice Administration program is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to begin your career as an administrative o­ffice professional. Furthermore, students are given the opportunity to select 15 credit hours of directed electives providing them the opportunity to tailor their degree to their interests.

Employment Opportunities

As one of the largest employment sectors in the United States, administrative assistants are employed in organizations of every type and held almost 4 million jobs in 2012. Employment of administrative assistants is projected, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, to grow 12% (about as fast as average for all occupations). The employment of medical administrative office professions, however, is expected to grow at 36% or three times the average for all jobs.

As a reliance on technology continues to expand in the offi­ce setting, job opportunities should be best for those applicants with extensive knowledge of related software applications. Opportunities should also be excellent for those with advanced communication and computer skills. Get your start in this professional career with a degree in Business O­ffice Administration at MACC.
