MI jobs are also found in farming, timber, fishing, and tourism.

Michigan Degrees and Career Opportunities

The strong manufacturing base in Michigan has led the state government to partner with technical schools, community colleges, and universities in developing curriculum and programs that equip graduates to step into the state's biggest industry, automotive manufacturing.

Graduates of Michigan schools apply what they learn as they enter the local work force. Employers may prefer to hire graduates who have earned an associate's, bachelor's, or master's degree programs within respective employment fields.

Online schools provide important educational opportunities for MI careers. Students in rural areas or those who are balancing school with an established career study at home. Some online class credits transfer into traditional college and university degree programs.
