Press Release claims – “Professor of Agribusiness at the University of Waikato, Jacqueline Rowarth says if students are looking for lucrative careers, then they should study science.”
(US) Statistics Show!
Mid career median income for philosophy majors: $81,200. Strangely enough, this is higher than the salaries for people in:
Business Management ($72100)
(It is also higher than for many other fields, but these seem like a good sample of those who will be getting ‘Agribusiness’ degrees).
Of course, if graduates really wanted to make as much money as possible, they should do degrees in…
Computer Engineering ($105,000)
Electrical Engineering ($103,000)
Aerospace Engineering ($101,000)
These being the top rated 5 professions on the above list. Or, our graduates could move to Australia, where they can work in the mines in Western Australia and earn a comfortable 6 figure salary. But then, they would not even need a degree to do that.
