About business administration

Every business needs skilled administrators. Without people who know how to produce and manage everyday office documentation and administrative tasks, business would grind to a halt. Administrators work in a wide range of offices including accounting, banking, manufacturing, education, health, and in central and local government agencies.

Good administration officers will have skills in the following areas:

  • Time management and the ability to prioritise tasks
  • Communication and listening
  • Decision-making
  • Problem-solving
  • Basic computer programmes.

Equip yourself with these key administrative, clerical and core IT skills that are in demand all over the world.
