"Social capital necessary for success in college and the workforce".; http://media.collegeboard.com/CollegePlanning/media/pdf/BigFuture-School-Counselors-Strategic-Planning-Tool.pdf
"Every student should graduate from high school with the educational preparation and social capital necessary for success in college and the workforce... To be effective leaders in establishing a college-going culture, counselors must be strong advocates for their students and their profession and possess the skills to drive positive change in the school. Strategic planning is an essential tool for school counselors to use to drive positive change in schools. Strategic planning helps school counselors use data to set clear goals and develop strategies with measurable outcomes for student achievement and success. Using this process helps school counselors to align college and career counseling with school improvement plans. It makes the case that college counseling is an effective way to meet the goals set by principals and district leaders.

The Value of A Degree http://www.chea.org/pdf/Value_of_Degree.pdf

The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) endorses and advocates the role of
the associate, baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral degrees. The higher education degree, from
its origins more than 700 years ago to the present day, has been associated with enhancement
of learning, transfer of knowledge across the generations and human betterment. The degree
also enjoys an historic relationship to quality assurance in higher education, and represents
basic aspirations of the higher education enterprise. The degree is thus valued by students, colleges,
universities, and society at large.
Why is the Degree Important?
Education for the degree is education for
• developing and deepening the capacity to think;
• obtaining knowledge on which preparation for the future depends;
• acquiring a fuller understanding of cultures;
• strengthening the foundation for informed citizenship, participation in community life
and public leadership; and,
• sustaining vocational roles and career goals.
The degree represents the efforts of educators and students to organize the learning experience
in pursuit of these critical purposes. As the capstone of higher education, the degree is intended
to foster lifelong learning and useful involvement in the world around us. By its confirmation
of skill development, the degree signifies that the student has acquired some mastery of
general education and preparation for career or profession. The degree indicates that a course
of study has been completed and that the student is positioned to continue to learn, work,
and function productively in pertinent communities.
What is the Distinction Between the Degree and Other Credentials?
Other kinds of credentials can, in their own particular contexts, be worthy and valuable. the
degree is distinguishable by its requirement, in general, that a greater number of credits, representing
a broader scope of study, be accumulated; by its general education expectations; and
by its emphasis on the life of the mind. While some of the benefits of the degree can be
obtained by other forms of credentialing, the degree uniquely represents the capacities and
skills identified above.

Music Publishing

Music Publishing

If you're interested in this industry, acquire as much knowledge as possible of the various music skills and the various mechanical procedures involved. To obtain the latter he or she should seek employment in a music publishing firm that maintains its own production and printing departments and then observe, ask questions, and remember what is being done and how.
  • Author — Research is a large part of this type of work. Knowledge in instrumental pedagogy is required.
  • Critic — Music critics are a unique combination of journalist and musician. Their views are published daily, often providing quotations to be used as publicity for performing artists. They affect their audience both directly and indirectly by determining which artists will survive in the performance media and will therefore be available for the public to choose from, and directly by influencing choices the public makes, its understanding of performances, and its reactions to them.
  • Journalist — If you are contemplating a career in music journalism a major in music is not needed. You should address yourself to acquiring and polishing useful journalistic skills. "Music" is only the adjective, "journalism" is the noun, so major in journalism, English, humanities, languages, anything that will improve your word-handling abilities.
  • Editor
    • Magazine/Book — Someone contemplating a career in music journalism should not major in music. You should address yourself to acquiring and polishing useful journalistic skills.
    • Music — Acquire as much knowledge as possible of the various music skills and the various mechanical procedures involved.
  • Historian
  • Publisher — Music publishing involves choosing materials to publish, editing and proofreading music manuscripts, promoting serious performance, and nurturing composers. Everything else is common to any other business with similar marketing and distribution procedures.
  • Arranger — If you excel in music theory, orchestration, and composition, you could find yourself working as an arranger. An arranger is in charge of creating arrangements of a song for an artist or an ensemble to play. Main priority of an arranger is to create parts for each instrument and voice, while keeping harmonic structure and other music theory guidelines in mind.

Example 5 year MBA ROI:

Again, assuming no raises, we can determine a 5 year ROI of $35,000. This is determined by taking your post-MBA salary, subtracting your pre-MBA salary, and subtracting the total cost of the MBA (tuition and forgone salary).
Salary (5 * $85,000 = $425,000) – (5 * $50,000= $250,000) = $175,000
Total cost of MBA (tuition and forgone salary) = $140,000
Total ROI = Salary – Total cost of MBA = ($175,000 – $140,000) = $35,000.
For 10 years, we get $850,000 – $500,000 – $140,000 = $210,000.
This is only a rough way to determine your ROI because it does not take into account raises or promotions. For a more complete way to calculate ROI for an MBA program, check out Forbes online MBA calculator.
