Designed as a model for use in preparing business education programs of study, this guide presents occupational programs and single course offerings recommended to meet business student and community needs. The programs are job-cluster oriented and cover the following occupational areas: business data processing and related occupations; clerical accounting and related occupations; office reprographics occupations; office services; secretarial, stenographic, and related occupations; and typewriting and related occupations. A program outline is presented for each cluster and contains a description of the program, program goals, employment opportunities, a suggested sequence of course offerings, and descriptions of the specific courses to be taught in each program. In addition to the clusters, descriptions of a Cooperative Office Education (COE) course and an office simulation course are also presented, as well as descriptions of single course offerings appropriate as basic business knowledge or as supplementary office and business education courses.
