Written by Saleem El Houssami, a Lebanese student from Beirut, Lebanon on the associate degree program at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA), Los Angeles, CA. The “Executive Basics” course was pretty good; it gave me a lot of information on what an executive really is and does. I had this totally different idea of it. I thought that an executive doesn’t really do much work in a company. I thought that he just sits behind his desk and gives out orders and that’s about it. After studying the “Executive Basics” course, I have a completely different idea. I know what an executive actually does. I know what his purpose is. I know what he needs to do, and how important it is for him to do his job. His unique job is the proper supervision of the staff and seeing that the company gets out its products or services. In short, he gets the work done by getting the staff to do their jobs. This new information will surely help me out in the future and will make me successful. Hubbard College of Administration is a self-paced business school that offers an exceptional business administration curriculum, unique learning technology, life-changing apprenticeships and internships, assistance with job placement and a lifetime warranty for students. I am currently on the “Effective Leadership” course.
