If you’re on the fence about whether or not you should get an associate’s degree, perhaps some statistical data can help you make up your mind. According to CNN Money, about 30% of individuals with associate’s degrees bring in higher salaries than those with bachelor’s degrees—and they certainly tend to earn more than those with only a high school diploma or GED. In Tennessee, for example, the average starting wage of a person with an associate’s degree is $38,948, which is over $1,300 more than the average starting salary of a person with a bachelor’s degree.
The lucrative salary and plentiful job openings are only two reasons why you can’t afford to not get your associate’s degree. There’s also the upfront savings to consider. Earning an associate’s degree is far more cost-effective than going to a four-year school in terms of tuition and being able to start work much sooner. Associate’s degree programs not only provide a sound academic foundation, but they also provide critical job training that employers are looking for.
When you’re ready to secure your financial future with an associate’s degree, get in touch with a friendly representative at Cambria-Rowe Business College by calling (888) 442-0437. We offer an array of associate’s degree programs, including accounting, medical assisting, legal assisting, and more. All of our programs can even be completed in as little as 18 months!

Medical Office Administration is a popular field of study here at Cambria-Rowe Business College. Many of our students choose to obtain an associate’s degree from our business college in this particular field because the healthcare industry is continuing to grow at a fast pace, providing numerous job opportunities across the country. Additionally, this field of study allows a great deal of flexibility in job choice. Here are a few of the possible careers you could pursue with this degree.
Medical Records Clerk
If you’re a highly organized person, you might consider using your associate’s degree from CRBC to become a medical records clerk. As a medical records clerk, it’ll be your responsibility to maintain patient files and statistics, and to fulfill requests for patient records. These days, most patient files are maintained electronically. Electronic Medical Records (EMR) enable healthcare professionals to readily track patient data, determine when patients are due for a checkup or vaccination, and improve the quality of healthcare.
If you prefer to work directly with people rather than devoting your time to recordkeeping, then perhaps you’d like to use your associate’s degree to land a job as a medical assistant. Medical assistants must have excellent people skills. They work along with physicians to interact with patients and put them at ease. As a medical assistant, you’ll take medical histories, prepare patients for exams, inform patients of procedures, perform basic tests, draw blood, remove sutures, and more. Becoming a medical assistant is an excellent way to work directly with patients without having to go through the rigors of medical school.
