Great article on the Business Management Program at Athens Technical College
 
The Business, Education and Humanities Division of Athens Technical College supports the college’s mission by offering business, education and humanities courses and programs that prepare students for employment or advancement in Georgia's economy.

The mission of the associate of applied science degree program in Business Management at ATC provides students with an understanding of the concepts, principles and techniques required in today's business and industrial environments. The program offers students the opportunity to specialize in the areas of customer service, general supervision, human resources management, operations management, quality assurance, small business management and supply chain management. These specializations enable students to concentrate on areas of interest to them as they prepare for locally and regionally available jobs.

The associate degree program provides graduates with career mobility options and facilitates continuing education at the baccalaureate level. Nick Chapman, Business Management Program Chair agrees, “As we continue to move forward with the advancement of technological changes, our students will be better prepared to go directly into the workforce, or continue their education beyond graduating from Athens Technical College.” He goes on to say, “Our classes are taught by faculty who possess the education and business industry work experiences necessary, to share with our students real-life experiences that occur within today’s changing workforce.”

In addition to the associate of applied science in Business Management, the program also allows students the opportunity to earn a Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC) in their chosen specialization: Customer Service Specialist, General Management, Human Resource Management, Operations Management, Small Business Management, Supply Chain Management and Quality Assurance Specialist. In addition, the Business Management program also offers TCC programs in Quality Assurance Specialist and Quality Assurance Professional.

The students within the Business Management program come from all walks of life including high school graduates, college graduates, dual enrollment students, unemployed workers, senior citizens, international students, United States veterans, current workforce employees and current business owners.

Graduates of ATC’s Business Management program may be employed in a variety of jobs, such as first-line supervisors, quality assurance specialists/analysts, human resource specialists, customer service specialists/representatives, logistics control analysts or supervisors, shipping/warehousing supervisors and small business managers.

First-line supervisors directly supervise and coordinate the activities of production and operating workers, inspectors, precision workers, machine setters and operators, assemblers, fabricators and plant and system operators.

Quality assurance specialists conduct tests to determine the quality of raw materials, as well as bulk, intermediate and finished products. They may also perform process quality audits, statistical sampling, plotting of control charts and problem-solving activities.

Human resources specialists perform activities in the human resources area, including screening, recruiting, interviewing and placing workers.

Logistics control analysts study product delivery or supply chain processes to identify or recommend changes. Shipping and warehousing supervisors plan, direct and coordinate the storage or distribution operations within an organization or the activities of organizations that are engaged in storing or distributing new materials or products.

Small business managers run all aspects of fledgling companies and established businesses with fewer than 20 employees. They plan, lead, organize and control the work of a small number of employees at the direction of the business owner.

The full program of coursework is currently offered in lecture and hybrid formats on the Athens campus and Walton campus. General core classes are offered on the Elbert and Greene campuses. Many and most program classes are also offered in an online format.

Since the adoption of the new Business Management program in Fall (2015), the student enrollment has steadily increased. The program has seen a 46% increase from the Fall 2015 term to the Spring 2016 term. For Summer (2016) and Fall (2016), the program projects a 30-40% increase from the previous terms.

Dr. Andrea Daniel Named Athens Technical College President

Commissioner Gretchen Corbin announced that Dr. Andrea Daniel has been named the next president of Athens Technical College.The state board of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) voted during its monthly meeting today to accept Commissioner Corbin’s recommendation.

Dr. Andrea Daniel currently serves as Executive Vice President of Athens Technical College. She began her 19-year career with Athens Tech on the college's Elbert County campus, transitioned to the main campus as registrar, and then moved into vice presidencies in economic development, external affairs and student affairs. During her time as Vice President of Economic Development, the number of companies with whom the college partnered for contract training more than doubled and included Caterpillar, Hitachi, Novelis, and Haring.

Dr. Daniel previously worked as a senior planning analyst for the Atlanta Regional Commission. She holds a doctorate in Business Administration from Northcentral University, an M.A. in Public Administration from the University of Georgia, and a B.A. in political science from Lander University. She has completed additional training in economic development and is a graduate of the L.E.A.D. Athens Class of 2008. Dr. Daniel, her husband Sterling and daughter Kimberlyn reside in Elberton.

"I am very honored and pleased to be selected as the fourth president of Athens Technical College, which was founded in 1958," said Dr. Daniel. "I look forward to leading our staff and faculty in providing students excellent opportunities to complete their education and provide companies with a qualified, trained workforce. I want to thank Commissioner Corbin and the search committee for this wonderful opportunity."

Dr. Daniel succeeds previous president Dr. Flora Tydings. Dr. Gail Thaxton, president of North Georgia Technical College, has served as interim president of Athens Technical College, which serves 10 counties including Clarke, Elbert, Greene, Hart, Madison, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Taliaferro, Walton and Wilkes.

"For many years, Dr. Daniel has been a leader in education and economic development and she has forged partnerships throughout the region. I’m looking forward to seeing Athens Tech grow even further under her leadership," said Commissioner Corbin. "At the same time, I want to thank Dr. Gail Thaxton, who took time away from her presidency at North Georgia Technical College to lead Athens Tech with such expertise during this time of transition. Likewise, I want to extend my great appreciation to Dr. Mark Ivester at North Georgia Tech, who took the reins during Dr. Thaxton’s absence and continued to add to the college’s successes."
