Career Outlook: 

Employment of business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations, adding about 632,400 new jobs. A stronger regulatory environment is driving the demand for more accountants and auditors who prepare and examine financial documents.

This median annual wage for business and financial occupations was $64,790 in May 2014, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $35,540.
