Information Technology – Nigeria’s Telecommunication sector has rapidly developed over the years. Nigeria has Largest ICT market in Africa, therefore making the telecommunication sector very profitable.

- Oil and Gas Engineers (Petrol-Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical)
- Medical Doctors
- Commercial Pilots – Being a commercial pilot in Nigeria is also a lucrative career but unfortunately they aren’t many aviation schools in Nigeria. The Nigeria college of Aviation Technology Zaria is probably the best aviation school. The profession is said to very daring, as more people have phobias for frequent air travels.
