Why study for a business secretary?

The development of entrepreneurship and setup of an increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises have given rise to the need for employees working as secretaries, but also as personal assistants to managers and/or executives, who will often be the owners of the enterprises as well. The first encounter between clients and enterprises happens through business secretaries, so that it is essential for these persons to represent their firms appropriately, with the right attitude and skills. Personal secretaries/assistants supply maximum support to their superiors and facilitate their work, but also enhance their administrative knowledge and develop skills in human relations.
