What's going to be the next hot industry? Any thoughts? If the PE bubble pops, and banking remains the gruelling soul-crushing endeavor that it is and becomes less and less glamorous, what is going to be the next hot industry that the business school class of 2015 is trying to break into?

My top 3 picks for the class of 2025

1) Medical - pharmaceutical: lotsa baby boomers with long life expectancies.
2) Sustainable Tourism: the amount of spendable cash keeps growing. Throw into the equation concerns about the environment, etc. and there's the environment for sustainable tourism to thrive.
3) Energy (all sorts): this one ain't solved yet. And the longer it takes to solve it, the hotter it'll be.

My top 3 picks for the class of 2015

1) PE
2) VC
3) MC

Coz the world don't change that fast.

Cheers. L.

Strip clubs huh? Vault doesn't have any career guides on that industry. I'm going to South Beach for a bachelor party this weekend so I'll have to do a little research.

Me (shouting over a blaring Nine Inch Nails song): Hello there! Hi, I'm a prospective business school student and I'm just doing a little research on various industries that I'm interested in. I was hoping you could help me frame your industries microenvironment using the 5 forces model! Say, is it just me or does it smell like cocoa butter in here?!

Space tourism looks tempting. That is, if Virgin Galactic can ever get that spaceship of theirs up and running.
