One of the most attractive features of a degree in economics is the flexibility it offers. Economists are in demand by employers in almost every field - from health care to technology, from sports to politics, and almost everywhere in between. In 2013, economics majors were ranked in the top ten of the most in demand majors by employers, according to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Economics majors have one of the lowest unemployment rates and one of the highest starting salaries of all college majors. In addition, Economics majors ran 15 on the 2013 Majors that Pay You Back scale - the highest of any business degree - with an average mid-year salary of $94,000.
