Make Your Career Recession-Proof

Look around – everything is business! Even businesses that aren’t designed to make money (nonprofits) need highly trained professionals to bring in the money (fundraising), manage the money (accounting), and spend the money (marketing). A background in business prepares you to make an impact in nearly any environment – private sector, government, nonprofit organizations, and more. Industries including high tech, manufacturing, fashion, and others rely on the skills and knowledge that business majors bring, which means there should be plenty of opportunities to find the work environment that’s right for you. And with the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting positive job growth in business and financial operations through the end of the decade, now is the right time to get started with your degree.
