Education / Pedagogy
Dutch term or phrase: Kantoor
How would you translate the field of study called Kantoor in the Belgian vocational schools.

Office (Management)?

Doesn't that sound extremely weird: I study Office?

Office Management appears to be something of higher education, so I'm a bit confused.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  writeaway: office administration. the URL Asker has shown confirms that it's office administration./secretarial and office work since it is preparation for taking an office job. business administration is the wrong solution here.

  -> Based on the description of the subject, I think business admin. seems to be appropriate. It sounds a little more "formal" than office admin?
