Business and Computer Education
The class work in a business course is often divided into themes that include marketing, business writing, finance, accounting, and economics. Students seeking to major in business at the college level will find it beneficial to gain introductory knowledge, and those who have creative ideas may learn how to apply for patents and develop an idea into a marketable product.
Computer Science Education
Computer scientists play a central role in our technological infrastructure. They develop hardware, software and other applications for use by the military, businesses and average consumers. This has made computer science one of the fastest-growing career fields in the U.S. today, with some occupations, such as software engineer, expected to grow an estimated 22 percent from 2012 to 2022. While this means tremendous opportunity for students and young professionals interested in the field, it also means increased competition, both at the college level and in the job market.
