Business Management and Administration
Business Management and Administration Pathway
"General Management Pathway"
There are two major courses in General Management; Accounting and Entrepreneurship. Students will be able to select one additional course to complete their track. Add on can include but are not limited to Integrated Business Application or Administrative Support Technology
Upon completion of courses in General Management students have the opportunity to become certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist. This certification is recognized nationally and demonstrates the students' ability, knowledge, and skills in Microsoft Office. MOS certification will advance career opportunities in a competitive work environment as well as prepare students for college. MOS certification will also attract employers looking at a resume because it lets hiring managers know this person is trained and equipped in Microsoft Office such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint
I definitely encourage students to be a part of General Management. General Management courses will prepare students to become business owners, CEO’s, Certified Public Accountant, managers in retail, financing, sales, marketing, money management, and so many other opportunities that are available in the job market. General Management courses will give the student a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to start and operate a business.
People with business skills are the ones who make the deals that build profitable companies that power the global economy. A career in business can take an individual to the CEO's corner office on the top floor of a skyscraper or around the world making million-dollar deals. The business management, and administration industry is the highest paying, with nearly half of all jobs in management and professional occupations. For those who have always wanted to be their own boss, this is the cluster to consider.
Mrs. Butler teaches the main courses for the Administration pathway. The Administration industry has vast opportunities for employment including self-employment. The Administration pathway provides skills needed in Human Resources Management, Financial Management, Records Management, Event Planning, and many other areas of business.
There are two mandatory courses for the Administration pathway. Students must complete Integrated Business Applications I and Administrative Support Technology. Students will select one additional CATE course to complete the Administrative Pathway. The Administration Pathway includes the MOS certification which measures proficiency in Microsoft Office applications. The Microsoft Office Specialist certification is required to be counted as a completer for the Administration pathway. Having the skills that are tested in the MOS certification is a major benefit for every workplace setting and indicates proficiency in one or more Microsoft Office Applications.
Mrs. Butler highly recommends the Administrative Support Services pathway for anyone whose goal is to become successful. Administrative Support Services provides skills that can also provide self-employment opportunities. The Administration Services pathway can lead to unlimited career opportunities. If success is your goal, select Administrative Support Services as your career pathway.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”If you believe you are a leader and can inspire others, then General Management is definitely the pathway for you.
