Professionals with business education skills are the ones who make the deals that build profitable companies that power the global economy. A career in business, finance, or marketing can take an individual to the CEO's corner office on the top floor of a skyscraper or around the world making million-dollar deals.
The Business, Management, and Administration industry is the highest paying, with nearly half of all jobs in management and professional occupations. For those who have always wanted to be their own boss, this is the cluster to consider. Surveys indicate that about one-fourth of all workers in BMA careers are self-employed.
The Marketing industry includes courses related to planning, managing, and performing wholesaling and retailing services and related marketing and distribution support services including merchandise/product management and promotion.
The Finance industry is process-oriented and employs professionals who watch the numbers add up and enjoy problem-solving. From entry-level billing clerks to CFOs of major corporations, everyone in this industry enjoys math and most likely is skilled with computers and accounting and/or spreadsheet software.
