Positive Employment Projections

Employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow by 22% from 2010-2020, faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services. Managers will be needed to organize and manage medical information and healthcare staff in all areas of the industry. (U.S. Dept. of Labor)

The Fast Stats listed in the Graduate Success publication is based upon the Career Survey administered by Oregon Tech's Career Services Office for the graduating class of 2013-14. The success rate is calculated as the percentage of survey respondents who are employed or continuing education within six months after graduation. Those who are inactive are not seeking employment for a variety of reasons. Average graduate salaries encompass all alumni within a given discipline. These results are from a survey conducted between December 2014 and January 2015.

The statistics and figures listed within each individual program of this publication are compiled from respondent data over graduation years 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14.
