Which degree pays the most and will lead you to earning a high salary?
The degree funded by daddy before you take a position in his law / finance firm. It isn't degrees that earn high money. It is the individuals. What degree is pretty irrelevant if you have the skills and knowledge to do a high paying job. In general the skills required are: - The ability to sacrifice everything for the job - The ability to problem solve highly technical issues and / or bring the right people together and get them to work cohesively to solve challenging problems - Work in complex teams liaising with a variety of people of different backgrounds and personalities
Last time I looked, pretty much no university course provides training for these skills.
