1 Why should I invest in an education? Earn the degree for the career you want

2 investing in your education may be your best career move Did you know that people who earn a bachelor s degree have nearly double the earning potential of those who complete high school only? In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, the more education you have, the greater your earning potential. College degrees can mean lower unemployment and higher earnings $1,300 $652 $785 $1,066 Median Weekly Earnings in 2012 HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATE BACHELOR S MASTER S DIPLOMA HOLDERS DEGREE HOLDERS DEGREE HOLDERS DEGREE HOLDERS 8.3 % 6.2 % 4.5 % 3.5 % Unemployment Rate in 2012 Source: U.S. Department of Labor (5/22/13). Retrieved 7/18/13 from Bureau of Labor Statistics, Data are for persons age 25 and over; earnings are for full-time wage and salary workers. For more information, visit devry.edu/sourceinfo. Even in a tough economy, college graduates fare better than high school graduates in the job market. During challenging economic times, working toward a college degree is a great way to prepare yourself for future opportunities and greater job security. Here s why: Earning a degree in an in-demand field can help expand your career options. In fact, DeVry University graduates over the last 10 years have worked at 95 of the Fortune 100 companies. 1 Nearly four out of five jobs destroyed by the recession were held by workers with a high school diploma or less. 2 The unemployment rate for those with a high school diploma only is nearly double that for those with a bachelor s degree. 3 By 2025, our economy could need 20 million more college-educated workers. 4 1 Employment information self-reported to DeVry by its graduates.

3 Higher degrees mean higher employment growth Not only are those with a bachelor s degree more likely to be employed, but job growth is often higher in fields that require a degree. In fact, over the last two decades, employment of degree holders has risen sharply. For associate degree holders, employment has grown 42 percent, while employment of those with bachelor s degrees or higher has risen an astonishing 82 percent. Greater employment growth for degree holders 100% 80% for 82 % GROWTH BACHELOR S Degree holders 60% 40% for 42 % GROWTH ASSOCIATE Degree holders 20% 0% DECLINE -20% Jan-89 Jan-90 Jan-91 Jan-92 Jan-93 Jan-94 Jan-95 Jan-96 Jan-97 Jan-98 Jan-99 Jan-00 Jan-01 Jan-02 Jan-03 Jan-04 Jan-05 Jan-06 Jan-07 Jan-08 Jan-09 Jan-10 Jan-11 Feb % Recession High school or less Associate degree or some college Bachelor s degree or higher for High School Diploma holders Source: The College Advantage: Weathering the Economic Storm, A.P.
