Creating a Professional Development Program for Business Officers

Fiscal Officers, Associate Deans, Directors and multi-departmental administrators who oversee the business of Higher Education manage the operations across campus and are the linchpin to an effective and efficient work force. At the same time, the environment this group manages in is racked with inefficient and redundant systems and processes. What is needed is a comprehensive approach which includes: evaluating the current educational needs of Fiscal Officers, determining the knowledge gaps in their professional skills, and ultimately providing professional development which eliminates these gaps while planning for the institution's future needs. Come see how Boston College has approached this challenge and has trained their key business managers across the academic and administrative divisions.
