Education and Teacher Training Programs
Accounting and Finance Programs
Despite the recent collapse of the global financial system, jobs in these sectors are expected to flourish as the system re-establishes itself. Sources predict that by 2014, employment in the accounting and financial sector will reach almost 21 million jobs. It is also predicted that the biggest growth will not occur in any one particular position of the professional ladder. Rather, it will be more of an overall growth affecting each and every conceivable position. For this reason, the accounting and financial programs at RISE University are developed to cover a wide range of subjects related to accounting and finance. Taking into account the fact that RISE University's students come from all around the globe, there is also a significant element of international accounting and finance, which allows the principles, knowledge and skills learned in the courses to be applied anywhere in the world.
Account directorsThe dot-com bust chased a lot of talent away from the Internet as people sought employment in more traditional industries in corporate
General managers at premier resorts and hotels
The demand for good general managers (GMs) has gone up because there are not enough people being trained in positions that lead to the job. Plus, as resorts and hotels specialize in a sport or other activity (e.g., golf or casinos), they need people with experience in that specialty.
GMs typically have either a bachelor's or master's degree in business or hotel management. They often get their start as sales managers in the hospitality industry then work their way up to director of sales and marketing, a job that pays between $80,000 and $120,000 depending on the location.
Designer of athletic and active wear
The increasingly fast churn in fashion wear (designers are usually creating clothes and footwear six months out) is one reason good designers are in demand. Another is the trend-centric ethos in the fashion industry: one person comes up with an idea that catches fire and other designers then need to rework their collection to incorporate it.
The demand for talent in apparel design is particularly high this year for athletic and active wear.
Apparel designers typically have an undergraduate degree in design and textiles or in fashion design.
Estimators price out the material costs for a project. Typically, they either have a two-year degree from a construction technology school or a four-year college degree with a major in construction management.
Managers oversee work on the construction site and other aspects of the project. They often have degrees in construction technology or management from 4-year colleges and many get their start as estimators.
In both instances, those with expertise in a particular kind of construction -- say, hospital buildings -- can command a premium in pay, since they can hit the ground running on similar projects.
SQL database administrators .NET and Java developers
Thanks to an increased concentration of web applications and online services that personalize and store users' information, structured query language (SQL) database administrators (DBAs) are in demand. They can command $100,000 and up in major cities like
And as in 2006, developers who are expert users of Java or Microsoft's software programming language .NET are still in demand and can command even higher pay now, on par with the salaries of SQL database administrators.
Computer technology jobs continue to grow as the world becomes more and more connected. are always looking for Information Technology workers. Look for degrees in information processing, information security, and information system management when looking for a job in this field.
Staff accountants Financial analysts
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was designed to increase corporate compliance and accounting transparency. But it has also created whole new departments of auditors and compliance experts, which have reduced the supply of experienced staff accountants and financial analysts. They're the ones who handle companies' general ledger account management, budget development and financial statement preparation.
Global oil demand—led by the
Forecasts predict that future global oil demand will rise sharply. BP’s 2009 found that oil demand from developing countries outside the grew in 2008 despite the recession. The International Energy Agency’s newest forecasts that will hit a record high this year and will keep rising as the global economy recovers. And the projects that oil demand will grow by almost 25 percent from 85 million barrels per day in 2008 to 105 million barrels per day in 2030.
, director of Central Intelligence under President Bill Clinton, noted: “We can move quickly to strike a major blow at oil and OPEC’s dominance…We can get a long way using existing vehicles, existing technology and affordable natural gas. As other improvements become practical—like charging your electric car from solar panels on your roof—they can be adopted.”
needs comprehensive clean energy and climate policies to decrease our dependence on this expensive and unstable commodity. The bipartisan, comprehensive energy and global warming legislation by Sens. John Kerry (D-MA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) is expected to include provisions that would reduce United States oil U.S.
The Biofuels Market 2010-2020
biofuels as one of the growing elements of the energy industry. Biofuels offer a number of environmental, social, and economic advantages, including lower emissions of harmful pollutants; decreased greenhouse gas emissions; increased employment in many rural areas due to additional agricultural chains; decreased dependence on oil imports; and enhanced fuel properties for vehicles.
The renewed focus on biofuels after the 2008-2009 financial crises can be attributed to increasing government support for biofuel producers, tax exemptions and subsidies. The subsequent rise of many small biofuel companies and bio refineries in the US, Brazil, Europe and Asia has increased competition and diversified the global market towards third generation biofuels like cellulosic biofuels and algae oil in particular. The report details the major developments in these technologies.
How much are individual regions planning to spend on biofuels between 2010 and 2020? How much will biofuels demand increase over the period 2010-2020? Who are the leading producers of biofuels? Where are the growth opportunities over the next decade - in which geographical region and with which type of technology? Who are the leading companies in the biofuels industry?
North American electronics manufacturing has evolved through six decades to its current level of precision, subminiature, surface mount connector technology and applications. Post 2000, massive outsourcing at the OEM level to reduce costs and leverage China and other Asia Pacific venues created the “global supply chain,” and connectors were part of it. Components are increasingly made where contract manufacturing is conducted and where consumer demand is increasing.
The current situation is that most high-volume standard product system assembly has migrated to Asia; along with it, standard products/high-volume connector manufacturing. Remaining in North America (or in near-shore locations) will be manufacturing lines that support domestic OEM and EMS production, i.e. applications that require a high degree of development and application engineering support and are less price-sensitive; and markets that depend primarily on domestic manufacturing, such as military/aerospace, medical, industrial, (traditionally) automotive, and emerging alternative energy markets.
Over the next decade we see several trends: 1) Engineering will migrate to offshore manufacturing areas and emerging markets, 2) There will be world-class automation in China, as labor rates increase, 3) North American manufacturing will continue to refocus toward lower volume, high-tech, specialty, and new technology products, with issues of how to support an infrastructure, and 4) The possibility of a paradigm shift in printed circuit board assembly toward integrated micro-packaging, printed electronics, and other new technologies that could support new platforms for high-volume/low-cost manufacturing domestically.
Much will depend on developments in IC technology, and the direction of key semiconductor OEMs such as Intel, with specific movement toward system level integration via SiP and SoC. New materials technologies (nano materials) may also create future opportunities, such as super-conductivity, and an expansion into micron level MEMS interconnect/packaging.
