Outlook for Employment

“Employment of management occupations is projected to grow eight percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations, which will result in about 807,300 new jobs. Employment growth is expected to be driven by the formation of new organizations and expansion of existing ones, which should require more workers to manage these operations. 

The median annual wage for management occupations was $102,590 in May 2017, which was the highest wage of all the major occupational groups.”
