Both entry-level positions and opportunities for advancement exist worldwide. Graduates from the Department of Administrative Services span continents in many kinds of positions, from administrative assistant to computer systems managers.

The Department of Administrative Services is located in the Robert Dempster Hall of Business on the northwest side of campus. This new location offers the latest instructional technology in all classrooms to prepare students for the information age. Computer technology is integrated throughout the curriculum as we offer business studies today for tomorrow's business successes.

Administrative Services has two large instructional computer labs housing Pentium III computers with zip drives and 17" monitors. Another large lab also containing Pentium IIIs is available on a reservation basis for classes and units across campus. A smaller fourth lab opened in Spring 1998 supports the new computer networking minor and provides instruction in Windows NT. All the computer labs (with the exception of the networking lab) are fully networked with the Internet and World Wide Web. Windows 98 and Office 2000 are now available in all computer labs on campus. E-mail is a favorite means of communication among students, as well as faculty and staff.
