"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."

"The Executive Office Administration program at Mohawk College provides you with every skill necessary for an amazing career.  The professors make it very clear that they want to see you succeed and they do everything they can to assist you in that goal.  The classes, though challenging, are so applicable in the field.  It's so fulfilling to be able to be so well-rounded in various skills and computer programs that are so vital in an office environment.  It amazes me how my schooling at Mohawk prepared me for my career.  Everything from filing, computer projects and etiquette are all so relevant in my new position.  I'm able to bring the business to a new level of professionalism and it's such a fulfilling feeling.  I am so thankful for my experience at Mohawk and will forever boast of the amazing teachers in the Office Administration Executive program.  By choosing this program you will be ready for a fantastic experience and career."

Sarah, Office Administration - Executive Graduate 2013 


"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."

Patricia, Office Administration - Executive Graduate 2013
