Quick Facts To Prove Your Program’s Value

  • High Demand for Business Jobs: A projected 34% of all available jobs in 2029 will be in management, business, finance, marketing, sales, and office/administrative support.
  • High Growth, High Wage: Seven of the top ten fastest-growing, high-wage jobs are in business, marketing, finance, and sales.
  • Declines in Lower-skilled Jobs Don’t Tell the Whole Story: While many business administration jobs are growing, those that utilize lower-level skills will see declines. However, there will still be large numbers of jobs available in these entry-level positions, such as secretaries, administrative assistants, data-entry keyers, and office clerks. For example, in 2026, it is projected that 2.37 million administrative assistants will be needed.
