If you want to earn a salary equal to that of a Wall Street banker then you need to make the right choices. The college and course matter a lot. According to a recent survey of over a thousand teaching premises in the United States by Pay Scale, the best institute is the US Naval Academy at Annapolis. You will be getting a pay packet equivalent to $77,100 once you graduate from this center of excellence.
Then there is the Harvey Mudd College which is based in Claremont (California). A decade of hard-won experience at this training school will earn you a fat paycheck of $143,000 by the time you have spent half a lifetime at your job.
Coker College was one institution that paid off least in terms of future career salary. Most of the highest earning graduates specialized in a cluster of subjects ranging from science and technology to engineering and mathematics. It seems the hard sciences paid of well.
Surprisingly, Anthropology (the study of early man) proved to be the least lucrative field of endeavor.
