Saying that unemployment among recent graduates with new Bachelor’s degrees is on average 8.9%, it states that “ … as the recovery proceeds and recent college graduates gain access to work, especially in their major fields, their unemployment rates will drop substantially …“ and „ … staying on campus to earn a graduate degree provides safe shelter from the immediate economic storm, and will pay off with greater employability and earnings …“
According to the study, unemployment among recent college graduates in Economics reaches 9.4%, 5.7% for college graduates with work experience and 4.6% for graduate degree holders. Average salaries of graduates in Economics stand at $48,000 for Bachelor’s degrees, $76,000 for college graduates with experience and $101,000 for graduate degrees.
