This is where employability after a degree comes into play. Some students prefer to study a degree which allows them to pursue their interest, some students want to take a prudent decision and take up a degree which is favored by employers when recruiting.
Top 5 Disciplines Employers recruit from
According to the QS Global Employer Survey 2016, the top five disciplines which are a favorite with employers are:
- Computer Science and Information Systems
- Business and Management Studies
- Accountancy and Finance
- Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Economics and Econometrics
And according to the same survey the bottom five disciplines are:
- Classics and Ancient History
- Theology, Divinity and Religious Studies
However, students pursuing a degree in the bottom five need not worry as the survey results are largely dependent on the kind of employers responding. Also, most of these degrees are specific to only a few areas of employment and hence the lower rank on the survey.
In the survey, employers from universities and research institutes too did not participate which accounts for the lower ranking of Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities disciplines.
