    Well accountancy is quite a safe bet. Directors in big 4 firms earn between £90,000 and £120,000 and this is achievable by the age of 30 if you work hard.

    Partners can easily earn over £300,000 from what I've seen. Where I worked both partners were earning above this.

    Even at mid tier firms partners earn around £150,000 and directors around £90,000.

    With an accountancy qualification you can work in other areas of business, as a CFO for example, and they will earn quite a bit.

    A couple of the tip/top law forms pay 60k to trainees. I've looked at the intake, pretty much all oxbridge, all 1st class honours, and all very personable from what I've heard.


    well in that case, I heard there are few who graduated from LSE (acc and finance) got 50k sallary from barclays or something after first degree.

    but I was giving ideas assuming the OP is not top-top-flier

    There no better job than investment banking. Your sallary will rise with experience, you are dreaming if you expect to earn 80k any time soon even after graduation
    Why?

    Nope, by best, I meant purely based on money

    not stress, life or any other factor.

    is that not the reason why it's the best? people have different goals. For person A - helping someone may be the best thing in the world for them so being a doctor would be great but to me - helping people is the last thing on my mind and the salary is the most important.

    Hi,

    What high salary type jobs (£80,000+) can I realistically pursue with an Economics undergraduate degree?

    Or do I need master's too? Well, I am just interested to know the job types/careers with high salary. Money is my main motivation.
    Obviously I can't go into medicine with Economics Bsc

    Thanks.
    Having a Masters would obviously help.

    I think you have to understand, however, that you're very unlikely to earn anywhere near that amount until many years after graduation. You could at most probably earn £30,000 to £40,000 on graduation from certain graduate schemes, but these would obviously be frightfully competitive and additionally you'd have little chance unless you're an extraordinary candidate.

    Investment banking; you could be earning that within a few years.
