Global growth is shifting to emerging markets, with dramatically different economic, political and social systems. Estimates show that 70 percent of world growth over the next few years will come from emerging markets, with China and India accounting for 40 percent of that growth. Professionals with international business and multicultural knowledge will be in high demand. Job prospects are best for those with a broad-based understanding of the new challenges that international companies face, including the growing impact of social media on business communication across borders and nations (Occupational Handbook, Bureau of Labor Statistics).
As U.S. organizations expand their business abroad, many will hire management analysts to help them for the right strategy for entering the foreign market. In 2010, the median annual wage of management analysts was $78,160 in May 2010, and employment of management analysts is expected to grow 22 percent by 2020 (Occupational Handbook, Bureau of Labor Statistics).
