Economics or Computer ScienceWatch
you can apply to everything an Econ grad can (besides economist roles obviously) and far more, you gain actual skills that are very valuable.
Econ lads lift more on average.
It's really weird. I think all the TSR bros who used to go mad for Finance when I was applying (five years ago) have now got a whiff of the high salaries some elite tech jobs offer, and are now going for CS instead. Applications to Oxford CS (apparently the most employable degree in the country?!) tripled in one year, I think, because everyone wants to be a software engineer and earn (they hope) $$$.

Study economics, a proper academic quality subject, everyone knows how to use a computer these days
you can do 99% of things an Econ grad can do and apply to the same roles, but Econ grads can't do the same as Compsci grads
