There are millions of unfilled jobs in the U.S., despite the country’s 9.1 percent unemployment rate, and many will remain because there aren’t enough candidates with the right education and training to fill them. Colleges and universities in Middle Tennessee are trying to address the skills gap by adding new programs and degrees and expanding curricula. The Owen Graduate School of Management’s new master’s of accountancy and Americas MBA are mentioned. James Bradford, dean of the Owen school, is quoted.
