According to a recent study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), employers are most attracted to hiring graduates holding these bachelors degrees in this year.
It’s true that there’s not many options out there for those with just a bachelor’s in economics. Most of the highest paying research and analysis positions require a minimum of a master’s degree. However, there is one job economics majors can fit well into, and that is compensation and benefits manager. Major companies, unions, and government agencies often manage retirement benefits accounts for their employees. A solid grounding in economics is enormously beneficial to the professionals managing those benefits.
