What opportunities are available with this degree?

Many of these students already have jobs, and are pursuing the degree in order to leverage a promotion or secure new employment.  These students and the others who do not already have jobs find work in healthcare data (e.g. identifying fraud, waste, and abuse by GPs), insurance (pricing auto, telecom, whatever policies, etc.), the Army or contractors (doing super secret stuff), education (working predicting retention rates, etc.).  Really, these folks are employable in about any industry.
