Administrative History

The Department of Business Education and Office Management (1956-1963) was a department in the College of Business at Brigham Young University.

The Department of Business Education was established in 1956 in response to the increasing demand for graduates in the business field. The department was headed by the following chairmen: Lars G. Crandall (1956), Edward L. Christensen (1957-1958), Lars G. Crandall (1959), Edward L. Christensen (1960), and Richard D. Bell (1961-1963).

The Department of Business Education and Office Management was created with two general purposes in mind: to prepare those planning on teaching business subjects at the high school level and to train executive secretaries in office skills and management techniques.

The Department of Business Education and Office Management was responsible for the teaching of courses on the classes of basic classroom procedures, secondary curriculum and participation, secondary student teaching, fundamentals of business education. It was also responsible for the teaching of courses that focused on general office management including the classes of calculating machines, basic office procedures, machine accounting, records control and office machines, directed office experience, office management, business English, business report writing, shorthand, applied stenography, typewriting, secretarial and statistical typewriting, and transcription.
