This program is designed for individuals working at the supervisory level and for those interested in supervisory positions. An advisory committee, composed of representatives from various types of businesses and industrial organizations, has assisted College of San Mateo in the development of the program.
Career opportunities for those with supervisory and management training should improve dramatically in the years ahead. Employers in virtually every field will be seeking individuals with formal training in organization and management for supervisorial, mid-level, and top management positions. Specific management opportunities include administrative assistant, bank trust officer, branch manager, chief executive officer, claims adjuster, department/division manager, employment interviewer, first-line supervisor, inventory manager, management consultant, information systems consultant, management trainee, office manager, operations manager, plant manager, president, production controller, project manager, shift supervisor, small business owner/manager, and store manager.
Some of these careers require a bachelor's or advanced degree. The program provides readily usable skills for the student who earns an associate's degree, as well as a base for those who intend to transfer to baccalaureate institutions.
