Most Popular Undergraduate (Engineering) And Graduate (MBA; Law Is #5) Degrees For Millionaires

One MillionHere’s What To Study If You Want to be a Millionaire:

Want to have the best chance of becoming a millionaire after graduation? Then engineering is the subject for you.

More existing millionaires have degrees in engineering than anything else according to new data from GlobalData WealthInsight published in association with Verdict, though among graduate degrees MBAs take the top spot.

For undergrads, economics comes in second place, though engineering gets the second spot for post-graduate millionaires.

Completing the top three is bachelor of business administration (BBA) for undergrads and economics for post-grad students.


Editor’s notes
Millionaires are calculated as net assets, excluding the value of people’s main house.

Medicine? When we were kids we all thought medicine was a sure ticket to wealth, albeit modest wealth.

Gosh, per this study it would appear that the American graduate law degree doesn't even have the wage premium of the undergrad law degrees elsewhere in the world. Wage premium seekers, seek the MBA. I think my five year old niece knows that by now.
