Current Study Programs Offering High Career Opportunities
Determining a college degree which would be highly employable is the biggest financial decision a student can make. Picking a major that results in a return on investment, is equally paramount these days. College students are advised to "know before you go" on comprehending labor market performance of a particular degree.

Jeff Stroh, who is a director of research at Georgetown University's Center on Education and Workforce, said that "It has become more critical for them to look at this data when making a decision because of the cost of education and the possibility of student debt," and stresses the importance of financial literacy when picking a degree. "There's nothing wrong with going into art, just realize what it gets you."

A student from George Town, Cam Smith, 22, has opted for a Marketing Major course specializing in operations and information management. He chose the course based on its prospects of better employment and higher earnings post its completion. He quickly found an employment opportunity in a full-time marketing job at ‘Fundrise’. The student says that he was more "forward-looking" than a traditional business management major. 

The survey reports of the National Association of Colleges and Employers, suggest that information management and marketing are two majors that are in huge demand. The most sought degrees are computer science, mechanical engineering, business administration, accounting and finance.

The table below showcases the top bachelor's degrees by name, demand and percentage of hiring.
