A COMPARATIVE STUDY TO DETERMINE THE EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND AND WORK EXPERIENCE DESIRABLE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE BUSINESS MANAGERS.
WAITE, ARLYN E.
THIS STUDY OF DESIRABLE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE BUSINESS MANAGERS CONSIDERS FIVE POINTS--(1) THE NECESSARY ACADEMIC SUBJECTS, (2) DESIRABLE DEGREES, (3) THE MOST HELPFUL EXPERIENCE, (4) DESIRABLE CERTIFICATION, AND (5) THE DIFFERENCES OF OPINION AMONG JUNIOR COLLEGE BUSINESS MANAGERS ON THEIR BEST QUALIFICATIONS. A 4-PAGE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO THE BUSINESS MANAGERS OF THE 22 PUBLIC AND SEVEN PRIVATE COLLEGES IN MICHIGAN. DATA FROM THE 17 RESPONDENTS WERE COMPARED WITH SIMILAR DATA FROM CALIFORNIA AND ILLINOIS, COMPILED FOR AN EARLIER STUDY. A MAJORITY OF THE REPLIES AGREED THAT THE BUSINESS MANAGER SHOULD (1) HAVE TAKEN PRESCRIBED COURSES IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND IN EDUCATION, (2) HAVE A DEGREE IN BOTH, (3) HOLD A MASTER'S DEGREE, (4) HAVE SERVED AN INTERNSHIP AND HOLD A CERTIFICATE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, AND (5) HAVE BOTH BUSINESS AND TEACHING EXPERIENCE. HE NEED NOT HAVE A DEGREE BEYOND THE MASTER'S. TEN COLLEGE COURSES ARE RECOMMENDED AS AN APPROPRIATE PROGRAM OF STUDY FOR HIS TRAINING. THREE AREAS NEEDING FURTHER RESEARCH ARE--(1) OPINIONS OF BOARD MEMBERS AND ADMINISTRATORS (OTHER THAN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATORS) ON DESIRABLE QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE JOB, (2) THE INITIATION OF NEW PROGRAMS AND THE IMPROVEMENT OF EXISTING ONES FOR HIS PREPARATION, AND (3) WHAT QUALIFICATIONS ARE CONSIDERED DESIRABLE IN OTHER STATES.
