According to the State of Florida website, international trade is one of Florida's strongest sectors, accounting for 40% of all U.S. exports to Latin and South America

Florida's economy is dominated by several different industries. According to the State of Florida website, international trade is one of Florida's strongest sectors, accounting for 40% of all U.S. exports to Latin and South America. Tourism is another major contributor to Florida's diverse economy. The warm weather, beautiful beaches, and family-friendly attractions draw about 60 million visitors to the state every year. In fact, Florida was the top destination state in 2011. Agriculture is another huge sector of the state economy, specifically the production of oranges, sugar cane, sweet corn, green beans, and other citrus fruits. The government was the largest employer in all counties in the state. According to a recent report by Florida TaxWatch, the district school board is one of the largest employers in every county in Florida. Approximately one out of every 30 Floridians is employed by district school boards.

Those who want to work for the largest industries or top employers in the state will most likely need to have a college degree from an accredited college. Although employment requirements vary by industry and employer, many of the top employers require applicants have a minimum of a bachelor's degree. A college degree does not guarantee employment, but it can give you a competitive advantage in the job market. Florida online colleges and universities prepare students for the working world by providing a comprehensive education and practical training that can be applied to various career fields.

Several of the state's well-known public universities offer online courses and degree programs to in-state and out-of-state students. Florida State University's Office of Distance Learning offers a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs. Additionally, University of Florida offers more than 50 online programs, and the University of Central Florida offers more than two dozen completely Web-based courses and degree or certificate programs.

Florida online colleges are a convenient and sometimes cheaper alternative to campus-based programs. Argosy University, Everest University, DeVry University, ITT Technical Institute, Rasmussen College, and Remington College are some of the larger, nationally-recognized online colleges with campuses in Florida. Those who are looking for smaller online colleges in Florida may want to consider Full Sail University, a for-profit university that offers certificates and degrees in film, art, game design, music production, and related disciplines.
