What is a summer course in administration studies? Administration is, generally speaking, the governance and organization of daily operations of a group. This is an exceedingly general term, so academic study of this topic is nearly always focused on a specific type of organization. Education administration courses, for example, attempt to prepare students for success as a leader in a school or university. Classes in this topic might include ethics, educational development, community engagement and pedagogy. Business administration is also a common focus of these summer courses. Subjects such as organizational theory, finance, entrepreneurship and management characterize this specialization of administration courses.

Organization is often a key skill developed in these classes. One might also expect to hone one's networking skills. These two practices might enhance a student's ability to lead when combined with the strategy skills gained through the study of administration.

Courses tend to have different costs from one school to the next. It is advisable to check with each institution to get an estimate of tuition before enrolling in a summer program.

Graduates of an education administration program tend to set a position as a school principal as an ultimate career goal. These individuals manage conflicts between students, teachers and parents, act as liaison to the community and oversee institutional operations. Business administrators might want to become a chief executive officer of a company. These professionals develop strategy, form partnerships and direct resources. Both of these positions require a high level of strategic thinking, interpersonal skills and responsibility out of their occupants.
