Business Management 101 for Registrars and Admissions Officers

Workshop ID: 1830
Fee: $120


Registrars and admissions officers often arrive at their positions through different paths, and for many, the path may not include business management training or experience.  Suddenly, through a hard-earned promotion, they often now find themselves supervising many people, who expect great leadership from the new manager.  The course is designed to equip new managers in Records or Admissions with some basic management concepts and the skills for supervising others.
