Business Administration Prospects

•  Employment of administrative services managers is estimated to grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Administrative tasks, such as facility management and records and information management, will remain essential in a wide range of industries. This occupation belongs to industries with the highest published employment and wages.
