A good, well-rounded education is important for anyone pursuing
the top administrative positions. To prepare for a job in college
administration, take accounting and math courses, as you may be
dealing with financial records and student statistics. To be a dean
of a college, you must have good communication skills, so you
should take courses in English literature and composition. Also,
speech courses are important, as you'll be required to give
presentations and represent your department at meetings and
conferences. Follow your guidance counselor's college preparatory
plan, which will likely include courses in science, economics,
foreign language, history, and sociology.
