AMERICA RUNS ON DUNKIN'.
>>> THERE'S NO DOUBT THAT
CHOOSING RIGHT COLLEGE MAJOR IS
CRITICAL.
IT TO AFFECT EMPLOYMENTCT
OPPORTUNITIES AND SALARY
POTENTIAL.
WHAT HAVE SOME OF THE TOP MAJORS
IN THE U.S. RIGHT NOW.
WE TURN TO DR. MICHAEL PLATERATER
PRESIDENT OF STRAYER UNIVERSITY
FOR INSIGHT ON THIS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US.
>>> VERY FAMILIAR WITH STRAYER,IL
AND THIS IS SPECIFICALLY, ALL
COLLEGES ANDIASP UNIVERSITIES ARE
THEY ARE EATCALLY PREPARINGPR
PEOPLE FOTHEORETICALLY PREPARING PEOPLE PRAR
FOR THE WORKFORCE, THIS ISTHIS
SOMETHING THAT YOUR UNIVERSITYUNIVER
IN SPECIFIC IS FOCUSED ON.
IF I'M A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR OR A A
COLLEGE FRESHMEN TRYING TO TRY
FIGURE OUT WHAT MY MAJOR SHOULD
BE, WHAT ARE THE THINGS I SHOULD SH
TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION.
>> TRADITIONALLY, PEOPLE ARE
THINKING, WHAT IS THE MAJOR THAT
WOULD GIVE ME A HIGH JOB
POTENTIAL, BUT I THINK THAT IS
SHORT-SITED, PEOPLE NEED TO LOOK TO
WHAT IS THEIR PASSION.
WHAT ARE THEY GOOD AT.
I HAD A ANY FEW W NEPHEW WHO IS ON A
SECURITY GUARD, BUT EVERY NIGHT
HE IS ON A COMPUTER.
IN HIS CASE HE DECIDED TO DEPOTO
PACK ANGOBACK AND GET HIS DEGREE ON
FORENSIC COMPUTER SCIENCE ORMP
COMPUTER SECURITY, OR IF YOU'RE
AN ADULT LEARNER, YOU MAY WANT
TO LOOK AT THE WHAT MAJORS WILLUTY,
HELP MET MA TO GET TO THE NEXT STAGESTAGE
OF MY LIFE.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE ENTREPRENEURS,ENTREP
BUSINESSES DO NOT FAIL BECAUSE
THEY DECIDED THAT THEY WANT TO,
THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THE
PRODUCT.
THEY FAIL BECAUSE IN MANY CASESMANY
YOU DON'T HAVE THE UNDERSTANDINGDERSTA
OF FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING.
SO ONCE YOU COME UP YOUR GOAL,
THEN YOU CAN COME UP WITH MAJORSME U
THAT WILL HELP YOU FULFILL THOSEOU
GOALS.
>> I'M VERY HAPPY TO HEAR YOU
SATOY THAT, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, WHEN
I TALK TO PEOPLE, I ALWAYS TELLOP
THEM, THINK ABOUT WHAT IT ISLE
THAT MAKES YOUAB HAPPY.
>> YES N THI..
>> THINK ABOUT WHAT INTERESTS
YOU.
>> YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND A LOST
YOUR ADULT LIFE WORK.
IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SOMETHING
THAT YOU HAVE AN INTEREST OR A
PASSIONLT B FOR.
>> NOT JUST PASSION, BUT ADULT
LEARNERS, STRAYER UNIVERSITY,
AND MOST OF THEM ARE GOINGF
PART-TIME BECAUSE THEY HAVE A
FULL-TIME JOB AND THEY AREUS
TAKING CARE OF B THEIR FAMILY.
THEY ARE TAKING ONE OF TWOAK
COURSES A QUARTER.SE
IT'S GOING TO TAKE THEM A WHILE
GOING PART PART-TIME.
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE
SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO KEEPTO
YOU THROUGH THE LONG TIMES ANDTIMES
WAKING UP IN THE MORNING AND NOTNOT
SPENDING AS MUCH TIME WITH YOUR
KIDS OR FAMILY BECAUSE YOU'REE YOU'
FINALLY GETTING WHAT IS REALLYREALLY
MATTERS IN TERMS OF REACHING
YOUR GOALS.YOUR
SO PEOPLE REALLY HAVE TO THINKTO
ABOUT THAT.
IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT PEOPLEPE
CAN JUST WAKE-UP IN THE MORNINGHE
AND SAY I WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE.E.
>> RIGHT.
> TYPICALLY THEY HAVE BEENHAVE
THINKING ABOUT IT, AND IT'S TIMEIT'S
FOR THEM TO MAKE THAT JUMP.
EDUCATION IS REALLY
TRANSFORMATIONNAL.TR
IT REALLY IS THANE ONE THING THATTHAT
CAN MAKE A MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN
PEOPLE'S LIVES.
I KNOW THAT IS CERTAINLY THERTAINL
CASE FOR ME.
>> HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT,
THERE ARE SOME FIELDS THAT ARE
EXPANDING, GROWING AT A TIMETIME
WHEN OTHER FIELDS ARE NOT DOING
THAT.
WE WANT AS THOUGH A GRAPHIC HEREC
THAT INDICATES WHERE SOME OF THE
FEASTEST GROAG GROWING SECTORS ARE.
BEST SEE SECTOR?
>> COMPUTER SCIENCE, AND CYBER
SECURITY SKILLS.
IN THIS CASE, WE KNOW NEWS THAT
IS GOING ON ABOUT OUR ACCOUNTS
BEING VULNERABLE, SO CYBERER
SECURITY, A LOTAB OF HIRING GOING
ON.NG
A LOT OF WAYS TAKING PEOPLE AND
MOVING THEM INTO THATKI AREA,
ALSO, IN THE CASE OF BUSINESS
AND MANAGEMENT SKILLS, AS I
SAID, A LOT OF PEOPLE IN TRYING
TO GET AHEAD, WANT TO MAKE THEIRNT
JOBS OF THE GROW.EO T
NOT ONLY OF TH THE JOB THEY'RE IN NOW,OB
BUT THE NEXT JOB AND IT'S TH E
BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT SKILLSSKILLS
THAT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN.
WE WILL HAVE DOCTORS WHO SAY, I D
REALLY NEED TO KNOW HOW TOOC RUN
MY BUSINESS, K I CAN REALLY GIVE
GREAT SERVICE BUT I DON'T KNOWDO
HOW TO RUN MY BUSINESS.
>> WHEN WE THINK OF PEOPLE QHG PELE
OUT OF THE MILITARY, THEY MAYMA
COME OUT WITH A VARIETY OFOF
SKILLS, BUT IF I'M IN THE
INFANTRY, I MAY WANT TO THINK
WHERE I WANT TO GO AND
HEALTHCARE.HE
>> HEALTHCARE IS THE NUMBERE
FOUR, WE HAVE IT PUSHED OVERAVE
THERE FOR SOME REASON, BUT
HEALTHCARE CONTINUING TO GROW.ON
AND BY THE LOOKS OTIF IT THAT WILL
CONTINUE TO BE THE CASE AS THIS
POPULATION.
CERTAINLY, I HAVE A BABY BOOMER
MYSELF.
>> YOU ARE NOWHERE BEING A BABYBABY
BOOMER.
>> THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.
>> AS PART THE BABY BOOMER
GENERATION, WE ARE GOING INTO A
STAGE THAT HEALTHCARE IS GOING IS
TO BE A MAJOR FACTOR.
THERE HAS TO BE A WHOLE INDUSTRY INDUSTRYxx
THAT HAS TO BE DEVELOPED FOR
THAT TO HAPPEN.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING OF INDEMANDNG
SKILL THAT YOU KNOW, YOU CAN
COME UP WITH MAJORS THAT WILL BE
THERE, SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR
FAMILY, SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY,
THEN THESE ARE THE MAJORS YOU
REALLY WANT TO THINK ABOUT AS
YOU ARE GOING FORWARD.
>> WE SHOWED SOME OF THOSE IN
DEMAND SKILLS, THEY INCLUDE
CRITICAL Y URTHINKING.HEHI
FOLKS DON'T KNOW WHAT CRITICALE
THINKING IS, TOW COMPLEX PROBLEM
SOLVING, JUDGMENT AND DECISIONDECISI
MAKING, ALL THINGS TO THINKINK
ABOUT.
GIVE ME A COUPLE WORDS OF ADVICE
THAT YOU WOULD HAVE FOR ADULTS
WHO ARE THINKING ABOUT - I WANT-- I
TO FURTHER MY EDUCATION, BETTER
MYSELF, AND GET A DEGREE, WHAT
IS THE WORD OF ADVICE HERE IN.RE
>> I THINK THAT THEY NEED TONEED
LOOK AT A HIGH-QUALITY
INFORMATION THAT IS ACCREDITED,
AND IS GOING TO FOCUS ON THEIR
NEEDS.
THEY NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'STH
GOING TO PROVIDE VALUE FOR THEM
GOING FORWARD, AND THAT IT IS
GOING TO CATER TO WHAT THEY
NEED, FOR STANCE, THERE MAY BE BE
CLASSES, THERE MAY BE CLASSES ONCL
THE WEEKENDS.
THERE MAY BE UNLIMITED TUTORING
THAT HAS TO HAPPEN 24-7, BECAUSE
AS -- IF I'M RAISING A FAMILY, IFAMILY
MAY NOT STUDY MY STUDYING UNTILUNTI
9:00 AT NIGHT AND WAKE-UP AT
3:00 A.M. IN THE MORNING.
>> THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
