What's a HAPP Degree Worth?
Is there anything out there for us?

I recently attended UMBC's Career Fair and NSBE's Diversity Recruitment Event and I left both events wondering the same thing: What's a HAPP degree worth? Healthcare companies are recruiting IT majors for Health IT and Data Analysis, so where does that leave the HAPP majors?
I've worked in a couple of doctor's offices, and usually private practice doctors will hire someone graduating from HAPP as the office manager (who oversees all of their employees). And that guy makes about as much as the doctors do, if they're good at what they do. Other than that, honestly, I'm not 100% sure.
