These are the degree subjects producing the richest grads

Naturally, around now you’re wondering which degree you should have done to get rich.

Unsurprisingly, the best choice would have been economics and finance, according to a new ranking of the degree subjects which produce the most mega-rich grads.

Degree information was available for 338 of the 1000-strong rich list, and beyond the more traditional economics and business, Tide say: “The remainder of the list reflects a broader range of subjects, suggesting a range of different paths to wealth and success.”
