Why are LSE students so highly paid statistically in comparison to other universities such as UOM UCL?
Isn’t it possible for people from other unis to also become high earners and earn 6 figure digits or will your university make it harder to do so?

LSE is targeted for investment banks heavily, that’s basically its whole reputation. I’d say if your aiming to earn 6 figures within a few years after graduating then the uni you attended is essential. Otherwise 10-15 years into your career, where you got your degree from matters much less.

- people go to LSE with the wish to work in banking
- relative proportion of quantitative degree courses
- fewer people go onto phd/ research - this suppresses the average earnings of a lot of STEM courses
- London based - average salaries in London are higher so getting a load of people who want to be in London increase the average.
- relatively more well connected students

There isnt such a big difference between LSE and UCL economics grads which as a better comparator than the overall university figures.

I’m attending UOM, will that hinder my chances of earning a 6 figure amount within a few years?

depends on what roles you're looking for, your previous academics, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Earning 6 figures a few years (3-5) out of uni is not typical whatsoever and is basically limited to banking, pe, hedge funds, top law firms, MBB consultants and maybe a few accountants from big4. I am unsure of salary progression in other fields but again would be extremely limited. UoM is a great uni but doesn't have the reputation of Oxbridge, LSE, Imperial and other top unis.
