Job outlook data

Employment of business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, adding about 630,000 new jobs.

A stronger regulatory environment is driving the demand for more accountants and auditors, who prepare and examine financial documents. As markets become more competitive, companies will look for ways to improve efficiency and control costs. Government agencies will also seek the services of analysts as they look for ways to reduce spending. In addition, growth of international business will contribute to higher demand for analysts. As U.S. organizations expand their business abroad, many companies will hire analysts to help them form the right strategy for entering international markets.
