This program is meant to meet the needs of managerial, administrative and secretarial personnel in public offices. On completion of the courses, graduates are equipped with concepts, methods, techniques and tools that allow them to begin a career in government ministries, international organisations or the private sector.

While you can never tell, with absolute certainty, that you are making the right choice by studying a certain course, you can do your best to stack the odds in your favor.
By choosing secretarial studies, you are doing just that: stacking the odds in your favor. Secretaries are fortunate enough to be able to work in any environment and in any industry. This opens up many possibilities, and gives you many options to choose from.
The aspects covered by secretarial studies are closely linked to many other fields, which means that even if you decide not to venture into a secretarial career, you will still be able to make use of the knowledge and skills that you have acquired. You could, for example, decide to study further and go into bookkeeping, where you will be required to perform a whole range of administrative tasks in addition to your bookkeeping duties.
