Timeline PhotosAccelerate MS is propelling economic opportunity for Mississippians. How will that happen?

Let’s consider a case study: The average income in Mississippi is $41,745. Data suggests an average annual demand for over 389 software developers while MS public institutions graduate an average of 77 individuals per year in software development programs.
