Gain Skills Employers Demand
As the information landscape evolves and organizations become more complex, skills in communication are critical. Today, many employers rank such abilities at the top of the list of qualities they seek in job candidates1.
In addition, managerial jobs in strategic communications—including advertising, promotions and marketing—are expected to increase by 14 percent from 2010 to 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, driven by a need for organizations to maintain and grow their market share2. Employment of public relations specialists, who perform the increasingly task of maintaining an organization’s public image, is expected to grow 23 percent over the same period, faster than the average for all occupations3. The digital portfolio and final project you’ll create as part of the online Master of Arts in Communication can help display your proficiency with digital and traditional communications tools.
