Why a Degree in Network Management Will Take You Places


hands typing on laptop surrounded by other screensTechnology and communication have permeated our society. If you’ve ever gone more than 15 minutes without the phones or the internet at work, you know how production can seemingly come to a standstill. We won’t talk about how upset individuals can be when these services are out at home.

All modern communication is supported by a network technology infrastructure. With ever-changing needs and technologies, it’s imperative that there are professionals with technical expertise, analytical talent and problem-solving ability. Having certifications like Microsoft, CISCO and Security+ can open up doors professionally, but earning a bachelor’s degree in Network Management will only increase your opportunities for growth.

Network management isn’t just about keeping the lights on, so to speak. It’s maintaining optimal business performance. Network managers are the software and hardware architects, and almost every industry in the United States has network manager jobs available.

The other component to network management jobs is the maintenance and development of proprietary software and systems. It’s all great if the internet is up and running, but if the company’s internal system has a glitch, there’s a major problem. Network managers who are able to design and write code are invaluable to the organizations they serve.
