“For those who do not work directly in IT, it can be easy to forget the immense work that happens in the background of communications, data, and computing,” BDC editors explain. After all, “Information technology is such a basic part of contemporary life that we take it for granted.”
In fact, “it takes a massive number of people to make the modern world possible,” and as such, the job market for information technology experts is growing by leaps and bounds. As Bachelor’s Degree Center editors explain,
“There are jobs to fill in IT, and not nearly enough people to fill them – a good position to be in, if you’re an experienced, well-trained information technology professional.” And while a degree is not always necessary to get an entry level job in IT, a bachelor’s degree is a necessity for advancement in many settings.
As BDC editors explain, “just having an associate’s or certificate means being stuck with entry-level jobs,” but “the most reliable way to prove you are ready to move ahead is a bachelor’s degree.”
An on-campus program provides “real, one-on-one mentorship” as well as “stronger networking opportunities like internships, workshops, and conferences.” On the other hand, “online format allows working adults to take their courses around their current schedule,” and working IT professionals can build on their experience and incorporate what they learn into their current positions while they work toward promotion.
With their Information Technology rankings Bachelor’s Degree Center hopes to highlight educational opportunities for everyone who wants to make a career in IT.
Bachelor’s Degree Center has been providing advice, resources, and rankings on the best traditional and online bachelor’s degree programs since 2014.
Completely independent and unbiased, BDC is working to be the ultimate resource for new high school graduates, working adults returning to school, and nontraditional students.
