Online Courses for Office Managers

The following descriptions highlight the curriculum of commonly offered online office manager courses.

An Administrative Office Management course provides the student with the skills required to manage an office in a variety of business settings. Students learn and discuss various topics, including employee supervision, office procedures, time management, and team building.

In an Office Specialist course, students are introduced to the duties of an office management specialist. Training can include records management, office computation, editing and proofreading, document processing, and Internet research techniques.

A Business Organization course provides students with an understanding of how businesses are organized, with emphasis on business concepts and terminology. Students learn how to successfully manage within an organizational system.

Medical Office Management courses are tailored for students interested in working in a medical environment, such as a physician's office, clinic, or hospital. Students learn medical terminology, insurance practices, and billing methods.

Students learn various aspects of working within a legal office in a Legal Office Administration course. Topics include legal office procedures, records management, legal terminology, and legal transcription.

In a Business Communications course, students hone their written and verbal communication skills, which are critical for an office administrator. Courses explore the best practices of business communications, including creating and delivering effective presentations and writing business reports.

Students who take a Project Management course learn how to manage projects from start to finish. Specifically, they learn about initiating and defining projects, estimating budgets, minimizing risks, allocating resources, scheduling personnel for work, auditing work, and closing the project when it is finished.
