Executive Assistant DiplomaThe Executive Assistant Diploma prepares students to serve in more senior positions as office managers and assistants to senior managers. After completing the Administrative Assistant Certificate in Year One, students take additional courses in management, business communications, and economics in Year Two. A Business Fundamentals Certificate will be awarded to students who only complete the first semester of the program.
