What are the best paying jobs straight out of graduation (from a top uni) in the first few years?

Preferably ones that offer a great challenge and have good exit opportunities but also give you the opportunity to gain transferable skills for an eventual shift into entrepreneurship.

Edit: Doing History, so software engineering and IT is off bounds

Investment Banking's certainly up there. I heard that Law's pretty good too.

Humanities degrees are fine for investment banks as they like diversity. Instead, they care more about what university you go to.

Exactly, finance & consulting is littered with humanities people. My manager, at an investment bank, is a lady with a bachelor's degree in Japanese. So long as you got the basic finance & technical skills, investment banking is fine for you OP. You do need a good school or top of your year results though, they can be really picky about it. For consulting you don't even need to know the finance technicals, just be equipped with a good analytical and business mind and you'll be fine. Again, for management consulting, you do need to graduate from a top school or get top results.
