Trend #4: Ensuring Job Security Through Education

Most of us in the business community have at least a handful of friends who are currently enrolled in graduate school seeking traditional master’s degrees to increase their professional value in common fields such as communications or business administration.

It is interesting to note, though, that as many industries have evolved to adapt to the changing business climate due to the seemingly never-ending recession, so have students in their pursuit of post-college education. Zapwater client Rasmussen College offers opportunities to students beyond the Bachelor’s level through its partnerships with leading universities. Through the Rasmussen Partner Network, students can earn Master’s and Doctoral degrees completely online, at their own convenience, from leading universities around the country.

Michelle Keyser, Marketing Manager for Rasmussen College, says she is seeing students choosing degree tracks in more resilient employment areas, such as ISM, Digital Design, and Criminal Justice. In the same vein, online degrees and classes are becoming attractive options for students who are trying to balance work, family and community responsibilities in an increasingly demanding economy.

Concurrently, many laid-off workers are returning to school to earn additional degrees in hopes of increasing their marketability in time for an eventual upturn.

The following are unique programs offered through Rasmussen College Online.

Online Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice – Homeland Security Specialization
Online Bachelor’s in Game & Simulation Production
Online Master of Public Health (MPH) - Disaster Management Degree
Online MBA in Entrepreneurship and Managing Innovation

What does your future hold? Earning an online degree may make the next season brighter for you.
