Careers Slideshow: Degrees In Demand: Higher Education for Tomorrow's IT Leaders
Which university and vocational degrees should you look for when you make your next new hire? What are the best higher education options for your existing staff? Are you thinking about advancing your own education by pursuing a degree? The right education can help round out much-needed business skills, groom an employee to act as a "global thinker," or cultivate niche talents in booming industries such as health care. Higher education prepares a graduate to handle leadership and business roles in a rapidly changing IT environment. To compile this list of the 10 hottest university and vocational school degrees, CIO Insight worked with two experts: George Colhmia, president/CEO of LeaderQuest, a learning-solutions company that provides corporate training and industry certifications; and Brian Barnier, a principal at ValueBridge Advisors who has provided consultation/education for groups such as the Center for CIO Leadership. Here's their list of the degrees that matter.
