       More Required of Modern Administrative Assistants than the Secretaries of the “Mad Men” Era

       BUFFALO, NY – Bryant & Stratton College, a pioneer in the field of career education since 1854 and the
       premier provider of online associate’s degrees, has announced the launch of its new online Associate of
       Administrative Assistant degree program. Created for students interested in a career in the growing
       administrative support industry, the program prepares graduates with the specialized knowledge and skills
       necessary to compete for and perform as administrative assistants in the 21st century. The launch of this
       program returns Bryant & Stratton to its roots as one of the nation’s leading secretarial schools.

        “Administrative assistants are not the short-hand taking, Dictaphone transcribing and correspondence
       typing secretaries of the ‘Mad Men’ era,” said Scott Traylor, Bryant & Stratton’s Director of Admissions
       for Online Education. “While a high school diploma may have been sufficient a decade ago, the role of
       administrative assistant has evolved, making advanced training necessary to succeed in today’s modern
       office.”

        Graduates of Bryant & Stratton College’s online Associate of Administrative Assistant degree program
       will be qualified for positions in contemporary offices as administrative support personnel and will have the
       skills needed to excel in jobs that require the selection, application and analysis of data within computerized
       office systems. Students interested in beginning an administrative support career, as well as current
       administrative assistants interested in advancement, can benefit from the training and knowledge the
       associate’s degree from Bryant & Stratton provides. The program features courses related to automated
       office equipment, word processing, office systems, accounting and administrative skills. A degree can
       increase a student’s marketability, earning potential and value in the workplace.

        “My goal is to become an administrative assistant and the difference between where I am and where I want
       to be in my career is an associate’s degree,” said Kana Dumas, a current student at Bryant & Stratton
       College, who is pursuing an Associate of Administrative Assistant degree online. “The Bryant & Stratton
       program impressed me because it is accredited and online, so I am able to get an associate’s degree that
       employers will respect in a way that fits with my schedule.”

        The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that employment of executive secretaries and administrative
       assistants will increase 13 percent between 2008 and 2018. The fields hiring the largest number of
       administrative assistants and secretaries include corporations; local and state government offices;
       universities, colleges and professional schools; hospitals and employment services.

        Bryant & Stratton College is currently accepting enrollments in the online Associate of Administrative
       Assistant degree program for classes beginning March 3 or May 5, 2010. Full-time students can complete
       their degree in 20 months.

       Bryant & Stratton College is regionally accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle
       States Association of Colleges and Schools, which is an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S.
       Secretary of Education and the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation.
