What kind of graduate degree is in demand right now?
I will be graduating with a Bachelor degree in Science soon. I don't want to work in science-related research so I don't want a Master of Science. I want to know what graduate degrees are in demand in industries such as pharmaceuticals or finance and are obtainable with a B. Sc.
I have a BS & MBA...and I'm in Finance. Your masters degree is going depend on what career path you choose and if you want be a manager or subject matter expert. Lots of Finance people have MBA's they you choose a concentration on what is most interesting to you- Human Resources, Project Management, Financial Crimes, Economics, Supply Chain Management...the list goes on depending on the school. Masters degrees are helpful but your work experience need to relevant to make it applicable.
Hi Flora - Try looking into nursing or programming. Those are both high demand jobs. There are also a lot of opportunities for people who can teach math and science at the high school level. Getting a teaching certificate can be pretty straight forward. If you are carrying loans from undergrad, you might be able to get some reimbursed through a teaching program.

This occupation finder site has a lot of really good information (http://www.bls.gov/ooh/occupation-finder.htm). Mess around with the number of projected new jobs to see which will be in demand in the future.
