What They Say ...

“Along with the wide variety of things I learned, I also greatly appreciated the applicability of those things in real life. I worked for a financial advisor right out of school and was asked to perform many tasks. There was nearly nothing that I didn’t feel well prepared for in the way of administration, and that relieved a great amount of stress as I learned things specific to that office.”
-Alicia King, 2012 graduate of the Office Administration A.A. from Harper Woods, MI.
