Online Database Administration Programs

Database administrators are in charge of effective data organization and storage, identifying user needs, and setting up new databases. Security has also become an increasingly important part of the job because databases are often linked to the Internet.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employers typically prefer database administrators with a bachelor's degree in computer science, information science, or management information systems. Because so much business is now conducted online, employers often seek candidates with an MBA specializing in information systems. Different career paths are available because businesses, organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions employ database administrators.

In addition to computer coursework for your degree, you can help advance your career further with professional certifications such as those for mySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft development environments. Computer degrees and certifications are offered online, which can be a convenient option, particularly for nontraditional students who need flexible options for their education.
