Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes, often referred to as ‘Program Standards', set out the essential learning that a student must achieve before being deemed ready to graduate.

In many cases these program learning outcomes were developed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) in consultation with employers and educators who are experts in the program field. To ensure the outcomes remain current and in line with industry needs, we invite our employers, graduates working in the field and current students to re-examine and update them during regular, ongoing program review focus groups.

"The Office Administration Executive program at Mohawk College really prepared me for the future through its engaging program, professional presentations, and professors who were always willing to help. The Executive program taught me practical skills that I can use in many areas of life, not just in the work place. The Professors are very enthusiastic about teaching students and directing them to be true administrative professionals. They are always willing to help because they truly want you to succeed. Mohawk College has a very positive atmosphere with both students and teachers encouraging you to reach your full potential.  In addition to advanced administrative skills, the program covers other skills such as Web Design, Communications and Event Planning. The Professors make this program a fun and realistic program to study."

"Mohawk’s faculty and program have provided me with valuable skills that developed not only my technical but also my interpersonal skills.  I was amazed with the courses Accounting 1 and 2 as everything I know I learned from these courses and now I am well-prepared to perform bookkeeping tasks in an office.  I feel confident in working in an office with the skill set acquired during my course at Mohawk."
