Earnings after DegreeWatch
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?
- 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.
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.
