Career counselors have always plugged business degrees as safe investments. But surveys say a generic business bachelors is not the way to get the best business jobs and starting salaries. The best business jobs go to professionals who specialize in one of three majors: accounting, finance, or IT. Earn an online bachelors degree in business with one of these three concentrations and watch your career prospects — and salary level — soar.
“People in this kind of job market have their eyes open to skill sets, not just theoretical skills, but accounting, software … things that have high value [to potential employers]” says Michael Jaeger, dean of the colleges of business and education at Eastern Oregon University. Jaeger oversees the online bachelors degree in business program at EOU.
