Look out Silicon Valley! Recent studies have shown that New York City’s digital landscape is burgeoning. While the five boroughs have been home to flourishing tech companies for many years, researchers in the industry and beyond have taken note of some illuminating statistics regarding tech job growth in the past 10 years. At Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST), the Manhattan graduate school with top master’s programs, students are prepared for cutting-edge, leadership roles in the growing technology industry, in NYC and beyond.
According to The Partnership for New York (via amNewYork), between 2006 and 2012 there were more than 25,000 tech jobs created in NYC. That’s a 21% jump in the city, almost twice the national average of 12%. Passionate students of technology will be pleased to know that the upward momentum is expected to continue.
Many industries have experienced technological growth across the spectrum, including startup ventures and technical service companies. But of all industries, it is the healthcare and social science industries that have seen a 90% increase over a six-year period, according to the same report. Although healthcare companies have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to taking advantage of technology, they have begun to make the necessary investments.
Touro College Graduate School of Technology is proud to offer the graduate school curriculum technology students need to not only fill Manhattan’s growing need for experts, but to make a genuine difference in their professional careers. If you’re passionate about web development, technology education, multimedia design, information systems, or countless other specializations in the industry, consider furthering your education at Touro GST.
