While our program is best for business majors (Accounting, Economics, Finance and Marketing majors), Non-traditional majors such as Law and Nursing also do very well with it. Law majors have used the networking and CRM for Sales certifications to leverage careers in the political arena or as an Activist while Nursing Majors normally in their Junior year seem to find easy employment as Pharmaceutical Sales Reps. In NJ the starting pay for a nursing major with CRM for Sales certification and Social Media Certification is around $125,000.00 per year. Nurses use this work to also visit doctors offices, clinics, hospitals etc. Giving them an opportunity to see the work places before they decide where they want to work as a nurse. Nurses who have also completed courseware in Supply Chain Management tend to start as Facility Administrators instead of entry level positions.
