What is the Management Career Outlook?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of management occupations is projected to grow six percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations, which will result in about 505,400 new jobs. Employment growth will be driven by the formation of new organizations and expansion of existing ones, which will require more workers to manage these operations. 

The median annual wage for management occupations was $97,230 in May 2014, which was the highest wage of all the major occupational groups.

 O*Net Online classifies 13 of the top 20 occupations for management as Bright Outlook occupations. This means these jobs are expected to grow rapidly in the next several years, will have large numbers of job openings, or are new and emerging occupations.**
