Connecticut has long been recognized as a manufacturing state and a leader in industrial development

Connecticut has long been recognized as a manufacturing state and a leader in industrial development. Perhaps its largest industrial output is transportation equipment, such as jet aircraft engines, helicopters, and nuclear submarines. The state is also widely known for its involvement in the insurance industry, with 106 insurance companies calling it home. Education is another major source of economic growth in Connecticut, and Yale is one of the largest employers in the state. Agriculture and farming also have a significant role in Connecticut's economy. This $3.5 billion industry is mostly driven by dairy farming, tobacco, nursery stock, and other "green" industries.

Connecticut's top employers are Aetna, Bayer, Boehringer Ingelheim, ESPN, and GE. If you want to get your foot in the door at one of these top employers or work for the state's biggest industries, you'll need a college degree. Although employment requirements vary from place to place, most big employers require a minimum of a bachelor's degree. Most importantly, you need to make sure your degree comes from an accredited college or university that meets specific academic standards. Although employment is never guaranteed, having a degree from accredited brick-and-mortar or online colleges and universities can improve your chances of being interviewed or considered for a job in your desired field.

Many of Connecticut's most renowned and selective universities offer online courses and degrees in addition to their campus-based programs. The University of Connecticut offers a variety of online graduate and non-credit programs through its Center for Continuing Studies. In-state and out-of-state students can choose from UConn's vast list of online course offerings that cover everything from general undergraduate subjects to niche master's degree programs, like human resources management, homeland security leadership, and humanitarian services administration. Many of the private universities in Connecticut now offer online courses and degree programs as well.

There are numerous private for-profit and non-profit institutions in the state, including big and small online schools. University of Phoenix, Lincoln Technical Institute, and Branford Hall Career Institute are some of the bigger online schools with a strong presence in Connecticut. Those who want to attend a smaller online school with more career-oriented programs can go to Post University or Sanford-Brown.
