Growing field gives key business support

Communication is the backbone of all businesses — regardless of size or industry. In the modern business environment, the ability to transmit and store information is vital to productivity — and thus, success. But no communication system runs itself. It’s the people behind the scenes who ensure that a business thrives. This means huge career potential for individuals who can design, implement, secure and manage communication networks and keep them running smoothly.

This widespread demand is one of the reasons CNN.com listed database administrators and systems administrators among its “Best Jobs in America for Fast Growth.” Candidates for these positions are expected to have an educational background in network and communications management or similar subjects.

Bachelor’s degree programs in network and communications management prepare students for maintaining network security and system efficiency, as well as designing computer communications systems.
