The Baccalaureate Evaluation test for access to the University plus availability such as Selectivity is being held these days. After getting a better or worse grade, many students will have to decide which studies they want to take. This is a complex decision that can influence what they will spend the next four years, but also the type of work they will do and the income they will have.

It is not that university studies should be chosen exclusively for the income that graduates of these disciplines usually obtain, but it is true that income is part of the work that is usually done, and that many students choose certain careers because they want to have a level of life that has a minimum.

So what careers should we study if we want to earn a lot of money? We cannot be sure that some studies that are currently being well paid will continue to be so in four years, but it is true that there are statistics that are compiled over time, they can allow us to get to know in which studies it is more likely that we win well when finishing them.

The best (and worst) races to earn money

Board 2853022 1280

According to the Survey of Labor Insertion of University Graduates in 2019, the best fields of study to make money before 30 were the following:

Medicine , with an average annual salary of €34.291 per year, followed by Nautical and maritime transport with 33.9777, Aeronautical Engineering with 30,454, Industrial Organization Engineering with 30,052, Software and Application Development with 29,794, Industrial Technology Engineering with 29,458, Computer Engineering with 29,295, Telecommunications Engineering with 28,737, Electronic Engineering with 28,471, and Naval and Ocean Engineering with 28,256.

And the worst? Well, according to that same study, they are Occupational therapy with a salary of €17,584/year, Geography and land use planning with 17,353, Human nutrition and dietetics with 17,097, History of art with 16,708, Conservation and restoration with 15,851, Fine arts with 15,753, Physiotherapy with 15,436, Dentistry with 14,795, Speech Therapy with 14,467 and the lowest paid of all Podiatry with €12,935 per year, bordering on the minimum wage.

And what about the Economics and Business careers that we have already talked about? They are probably not the best for earning money, Financial and actuarial science remains the best paid branch, with €28,245/year, Marketing remains at 23,906, Economics at 23,835, Administration and business at 23,551, Finance and accounting with 20,366 and Management and public administration with 19,034 are the lowest paid.

That is to say, as a general rule we could say that if we want to have a good salary, the best is medicine or, alternatively, engineering and sciences such as mathematics and physics, but also that the worst options are humanities and socio-health services. But clearly if you want to get rich, the branches of economics and business do not seem the best places to start our university studies (another thing would be to talk about postgraduate degrees). But it is not the only thing to take into account.

According to several studies , university students with the best job placement tend to have these several traits in common:

  • They study qualifications that prepare for highly demanded professions.
  • They are trained in universities with highly qualified teaching staff.
  • They acquire transversal skills and abilities and study abroad.
  • They study at universities located in dynamic economic areas (where we live is quite important in determining our income, social mobility and job placement). , but esp can be solved by changing the region.
  • They receive support from social networks, family members and their home universities.

There are two aspects to consider when checking, the first is that many times the studies do not have much to do with the field in which they end up working. Many people end up having a different study than the field in which they have studied. The second is that we all have a series of abilities and deficiencies with us , we will gain more in those fields in which our capacities are better valued and our weaknesses are irrelevant. That is much more important, if we are not good at a subject, it is better that we do not dedicate ourselves to it even if it interests us.

Ask the readers, if they could go back to school thinking mainly about their economic performance and quality of life, what would they study?
