Is it time for an education that will put you in demand?

Think about this ...

Employers say they expect to hire 13 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2013 than they did from the Class of 2012, according to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). This year, at the bachelor’s level, the list is topped by finance, followed by computer and information science, accounting and business administration/management.

And this too…

MBA talent remains in demand, even as businesses deal with a weak economy. That’s one of the key findings from the 2013 Corporate Recruiters Survey, conducted by GMAC in partnership with the MBA Career Services Council.

The job market continues to improve for graduate business degree holders. An estimated 75% of companies plan to hire MBAs, with the energy/utilities and health care/pharmaceuticals sectors showing the greatest growth in MBA demand compared with last year. Nearly seven out of ten of respondents (71 percent) said they had hired MBA graduates in 2012, and even more employers (75 percent) plan to hire MBAs in 2013. These findings point to a positive job outlook for MBA graduates.
