In An Uncertain Economic Climate, The Value Of An Advanced College Education Continues To Grow

LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the next decade, 14 million jobs are expected to be created, and most of those jobs will be in fields that can be filled by graduates with a trade-based associates degree. The market for highly skilled workers in fields like computer networking, medical assistantship, and English as a second language is already growing, and the pace will likely only increase in the coming years. In these rapidly evolving economic conditions, individuals with the greatest job security will often be found among those with an online associates degree from schools like Advanced College.

At Advanced College, students have been increasing their marketability by garnering degrees in fields such as accounting and healthcare, or by receiving an online business administration degree. As a college offering short and long-term training certificate and associate degree programs, Advanced College has been able to build an intellectual environment for students in quickly growing fields since 1999. Their productive history has put Advanced College in the forefront of today's changing economy, a fact that has been clearly illustrated by the success of the school's graduates. Whether they go directly into the work force or continue their education by acquiring a bachelor's, master's or PhD, Advance College graduates always move forward with computational skills and knowledge in cutting-edge fields that are expected to be among the most marketable for many years to come.

Among other online schools and traditional brick-and-mortar schools alike, Advanced College has been able to stand head-and-shoulders above the competition through its accreditation by the Council of Occupational Education. The distinguished school's programs have also been approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, the Department of Homeland Security, the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians, among various other organizations.
