    Annual report- best majors for college students

    The College Degrees With The Highest Starting Salaries - Yahoo! Finance

    "Best" meaning highest starting salaries without additional training.

    so basically the best college majors are majors which actually give you a marketable skillset, rather than teach you abstract "critical thinking" skills which are not applicable to any REAL jobs?

    sounds legit.

    So working in finance isn't equivalent to a real job?

    the main reason why those salaries are being paid cause there is scarcity of talent.
