MOUNT VERNON—Based on a new study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), Brewton-Parker College offers two of the top five in-demand degrees by employers in 2011: Accounting and Business Administration.
NACE researchers polled employers to see what positions are in need for its “2011 Job Outlook”. The study finds that the most in-demand degree is accounting, with finance, engineering, computer science and business administration following in the top five positions.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average salary for an accountant is around $68.960, and employment opportunities for accountants are expected to rise 22 percent through 2018.
Business Administration, or a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) as BPC offers it, is one of the most flexible degrees, allowing graduates to pursue several different job routes. NACE lists job opportunities ranging from public relations and marketing specialists averaging over $50,000 a year, to operations research analysts making $76,980 a year.
All average salary information comes from the U.S. Department of Labor’s median earnings for 2010.
According to Randy Minton, chair of BPC’s Business Division and interim chief operations officer, “The latest report from NACE provided yet another indicator of the strength of an education in accounting when it ranked accounting with the highest placement rate of all business disciplines. The BPC Bachelor of Business Administration with a Concentration in Accounting offers students a powerful tool for entry and promotion in the job market. According to the United States Department of Labor, demand for accountants will be strong into the foreseeable future. At Brewton-Parker College, our faculty and staff are committed to student success in accounting and all other programs the college offers.”
