Medicine

Truth is medicine is one of the most marketable courses in Nigerian university. Once you finish your training as a medical doctor, you are very sure of getting job fast. In most instances, jobs are waiting for you once you finish, even before your induction.

The population of Nigeria is increasing by the day. Many more people get sick and they will want to visit hospitals for treatment. This means the curse will always be marketable; it is as profitable as “pure-water” business in dry seasons …lolz.

Estate Management

Many people never realize how marketable this course can be. Truth is the course is marketable and will continue to be. This is because Nigeria’s population is increasing by the day. Many more buildings are being built to meet with this increasing population.

Those who own these buildings will always require the services of estate managers to mange and oversee these buildings. If you are a science student in search of the best course to study in the university, this course will prove to be one of the best to choose.

Accounting

Accounting is a marketable course any day. The service of an accountant is required by virtually all professional bodies, accounting firms and so on.  They audit accounts and are needed to work in several places, like airports, hotels, supermarkets, banks, churches, schools and so on.

Their services are also required in government establishments. The accounting graduate will however need to go for professional courses in accounting as ordinary accounting degree is not that marketable.

Chemical and Petroleum Engineering

The chemical and petroleum industries in Nigeria are always on the lookout for worthy graduates in these fields to employ.

Getting job in these industries may not be so easy, but anyone who is able to get such a job after graduating from the university will never have to go hungry again. The pay is good and the lifestyle it offers is top class.

Theater Arts

Most theatre arts graduates are into self employment. Be that as it may, this is a thriving industry in thee Nigeria of today. The entertainment provided by this industry is well sought after by Nigerians.

So many successful and well known individuals have been produced by this industry and many of them are Theatre Arts graduates.  The best universities where you can study this course in Nigeria are University of Calabar, University of Lagos and University of Port Harcourt.

Pharmacy

This is yet another highly marketable course in Nigeria. Graduates of pharmacy are involved in formulating drugs.  They are taught about how drugs work and the side effects of these drugs.

A pharmacy student is also taught about how drugs interact. A pharmacy graduate can be employed by the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

If they like, they can go into private practice by establishing their own pharmaceutical company. They can equally seek employment with any of the pharmaceutical companies in Nigeria.

Computer Engineering and Information Technology

We are in information age and any graduate of computer engineering and information technology is undoubtedly a hot cake. Virtually everyone is online these days. The number of those in need of computers and information technology services will increase astronomically in the nearest future.

This means the services of computer engineering and information technology graduates will be needed more and more in the nearest future. The only problem is that one can actually become a computer engineering and information technology expert without writing UTME or seeing the four walls of a university.

Nursing is a marketable course any day. As a nursing graduate, your possibilities are simply limitless. You can work both in Nigeria and other countries of the world. Many foreign countries are desperately looking for nurses to employ and you can travel aboard to get gainfully employed if you do not like the working condition in Nigeria.

The same thing applies to laboratory scientist. As a fresh graduate of nursing, you may not earn much, but your pay increases if you go for further professional courses, like post-basic training in surgery, midwifery and the likes.

Marketing

Marketing degree is one of the most marketable in Nigeria of today. A marketer is needed by virtually every business organization. Marketing is not what just anyone can do; it is a professional thing and this is why any business organization that desires to thrive in the midst of competition will employ a marketer.

The marketer can equally go into private practice and he/she will be able to thrive in business than others who do not have the skills he/she had been given in the universities.

Mass Communication

This is yet another very marketable course you can consider if you are an Arts student in secondary school.  It is not offered by many Nigerian universities since not all of them have the facilities to offer the course.

A mass communication graduate can work in a TV station or radio station. He/she can also work in a newspaper industry. He can be employed by government and he can as well go into self employment and become a freelance journalist. As a mass communication graduate, you can equally work at the embassy.
