Two recent studies find that university students studying economics earn significantly higher wages than those who have not taken economics as part of their studies. Part of this premium is due to the fact that economics students work in better jobs once they graduate but the research also finds that economics students earn more than others even when they do the same job. This strongly supports the view that employers value the skills that economics students bring to the workforce.
