Office Management

Organizing the workflow

Organizations need order to run well—and a good office manager provides order, and the Office Management minor will equip you to organize, manage, and distribute information with confidence and care. You’ll receive practical knowledge in office technology and methods as well as preparation for graduate school and more specialized fields of management. In addition to studying management of profit and non-profit organizations, you’ll develop skills in the Microsoft Office software suite and in other office management procedures and functions. Maranatha is an authorized testing center for Microsoft Office Specialist certification in Word and Excel (Access and PowerPoint are optional).

In the real world

Luke Musgrave (’09) is a “landman” for Denver based High West Resources. His duties include researching lease and title files and mineral rights ownership for clients preparing to make large land sales and purchases. “The extensive training Maranatha gave me in writing, and the many opportunities they gave me to work on projects in a team atmosphere, have helped prepare me for these types of projects,” Musgrave said.
