A Degree with a Future

Accountants and auditors, general and operations managers, market research analysts and marketing specialists, and management analysts are occupations with projected high growth nationally over the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Median annual income in 2017 for those positions ranged from $63,230 to $100,410.

In Vermont, the outlook also looks promising for those positions for people with at least a bachelor’s degree. The top 25 occupations based on the number of projected openings through 2024 include accountants and auditors, general and operations managers, and all other managers, according to the Vermont Department of Labor.

“The program pushes students to step out of their comfort zone and think critically, as a leader in the business world. This hands-on approach has allowed me to develop skills that I never thought that I would need to succeed.”
