Busted Myth of the Week: Business Majors Earn the Most Money after Graduation

It’s common wisdom that business majors stand the best chance of snagging high-paying jobs after they graduate from college. But not so. If you want a top-paying job after you graduate college, perhaps you should be studying engineering. That’s the message behind The National Association of Colleges and Employers’ list of top-paying jobs for recent graduates.

Here are the jobs that NACE says will reward you with the highest starting salaries after graduation . . .

  • Chemical Engineering - $67,000
  • Computer Science - $63,000
  • Mechanical Engineering - $61,000
  • Electronic Engineering - $61,000
  • Computer Engineering - $60,000
  • Industrial Engineering - $59,000
  • Systems Engineering - $57,000
  • Engineering Technology - $57,000
  • Information Sciences - $57,000
  • Networking and Telecommunication Sciences - $57,000

How can you transition into one of these technical fields? One good way is to take some college courses online to test the waters before you take the plunge.
