"Science, engineering, mathematics, and to a lesser extent economics majors probably actually do significantly better than this table suggests, because many of the degrees awarded in these areas are to students" WHO (A) HAVE LITTLE TO NO INTEREST IN PURSUING A CAREER OUTSIDE RESEARCH/ENGINEERING, AND (B) HAVE THE ABILITY TO EARN A GOOD LIVING OUTSIDE OF BUSINESS. Neither of these are true for business majors.

You forgot a couple more reasons why these numbers underestimate how well STEM backgrounds might prepare people for a career in business. :)


Nathan, I agree completely. In addition, my guess is that the factor you mention is the primary reason why economics and accounting do better than some of the STEM majors.
