"After I graduated I became the Director of Marketing and Public Relations for a successful software company due to the Job Placement assistance at the College. I was able to come in and start in an executive position only because of what I had learned. In the six months I've been working here, we have increased sales by 40% over the previous year."

How to Design an Optimum Organizational Structure

Most small businesses and professional practices begin with a few people who know all or many aspects of the business and the functions are handled according to who is available or most familiar or as needed. The distinction between duties, responsibilities and authorities are often not clear-cut. An organization run in this manner can never expand beyond a handful of employees. The owner of this type of organization is usually overworked and spends his time putting out fires instead of planning for expansion or forward progress.

This program covers the functions that must be present in any organization, how the functions interact and affect each other, and how things should flow through an organization. It teaches the tools needed to design an organization and correctly sequence the basic organizational functions. It covers basic study skills, business ethics, organizational design knowledge and tools.

A faculty-supervised Final Practical Application requires the student to apply the knowledge and skills learned to design an organizational structure and implementation plan for a business or organization.

This program is recommended for business owners, professionals, executives, managers and office managers.
