DeVry University National Open House Events to Spotlight In-Demand Careers

More than 90 DeVry University locations nationwide will host events focusing on careers with faster than average projected growth rates and degree programs critical to success in these fields on February 12

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., January 10, 2011

Although the US economy continues to struggle with unemployment levels hovering just below 10 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects above-average growth potential over the next several years in career fields that include accounting, healthcare technology and information security. On February 12, more than 90 DeVry University locations will host National Open House events specifically focused on in-demand careers for the 21st century, with a mission to assist local residents in reaching their professional and educational goals.

Event attendees will have the opportunity, both on-site and through an online virtual open house, to learn about emerging professions and degree programs highly sought-after by today’s top employers. Events will feature presentations on in-demand careers and financing your education, panel discussions, and the opportunity to meet with an admissions representative.

“DeVry University continues to be a proponent of aligning our nation’s workforce with future demand as identified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,” says David J. Pauldine, president of DeVry University. “DeVry’s practitioner-oriented professors and dedicated career services advisors help our students maintain a forward-thinking outlook toward achieving satisfying careers in these fields.”

For example, the BLS projects overall employment of computer network, systems, and database administrators to increase by 30 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. 1 In an effort to meet this demand, DeVry University’s College of Engineering & Information Sciences offers multiple bachelor’s degree programs that prepare graduates for careers in these fields. DeVry University is home to five colleges of study with a breadth of degree programs that enhances students’ career prospects.

DeVry University’s academic programs are focused on student outcomes and many are designed in partnership with Fortune 500-level companies to provide real-world knowledge. Courses are taught by faculty members who are industry-leading professionals and provide students with personalized attention to help prepare them for career success.
