In many ways, choosing a career in office administration means choosing to be at the core of an organization's operations. Lambton College's Office Administration - General program is ideal for those looking to develop their organizational, professional business, technical, and communication skills. It is an excellent stepping stone to a great career in office administration, offering students the required administrative support knowledge that will enhance the very important entry-level role in any office to be successful.

With a wide variety of hands-on practical experience such as, learning to expertly use a series of Microsoft Office programs, general accounting, fundamental office skills and soft skills for effective communication, graduates of this program are fully trained to meet the demands of today's challenging work environments. Graduates with these skills have the advantage of experiencing a range of work opportunities because these skills are highly transferable.

The General program is also a common year for the two-year diploma programs, so students who wish to further their acquired skills and obtain specialization before taking employment can automatically enter the second year of either the Office Administration - Health Services or Executive programs. Students who choose to further their education by registering for year two in either specialty are strongly encouraged to register for CPL-1003 Internship in Term 4 to gain work experience in an office.

Office Administration students have opportunities throughout Lambton College to gain experience and grow their portfolios through participating in various activities to build their co-curricular records.

In a 2019 Key Performance Indicator (KPI) survey, 100% of the students indicated the program developed their computer skills. Likewise, 94% of Office Administration - General students said their main goal for enrolling was to prepare for employment or a career.
