An account manager solves clients' problems and helps them achieve their financial goals. It's important to be social for this work, and as Viviana finds out, there is nothing boring about it—no two clients, situations or days are the same in this fast-paced career.
Most accounts manager positions require at least a bachelor's degree. A popular degree program for aspiring accounts managers is the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), which generally includes classes in accounting, advertising, communications, finance, management, and marketing.
Overall employment of advertising, promotions, and marketing managers is projected to grow 6 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will vary by occupation.
While account managers frequently work full time in an office setting, they may travel to conduct meetings and demonstrations for clients.
