Texas has earned itself plenty of praise in the business world. In May 2006, Forbes magazine ranked Houston as the third best place for business and careers in the country, while CNN Money ranked Austin among the nation's top ten cities for job growth. Besides the thriving business sector, the quality of business schools in commerce-heavy metropolitan areas like Dallas, Forth Worth, and San Antonio makes Texas an excellent place to start your business career.
Popular degree programs include accounting and telecom management. With a degree in business administration, you can get the training you'll need for a career as a public relations specialist, marketing manager, or even--with a certificate in human resources--a human resources manager. Public relations specialists can earn median annual salaries topping $43,000, while human resources managers can earn up to $66,500 a year.
