World currencies A Business Major = Financial Sense

If you're wondering what you should major in, here's a statistic you should know: Business majors have a 20 percent higher starting salary than the average graduate with a bachelor's degree.

That may not seem important now, with graduation several years away, but think about it: A higher starting salary could come with benefits such as earlier repayment of student loans, the ability to put more money in savings (or spend more...but let's not be irresponsible here), and higher earning potential over the course of your entire career.

According to the April 2014 NACE Salary Survey, the average starting salary of business majors across the nation is $53,901. That's a big number. It means you don't have to live in your parents' basement. It means you can eat more than Ramen noodles. It means that you might get a job right out of college and already be past the halfway point to a six-figure salary.

UNIBusiness is ready to prepare you for that job after graduation. With the Professional Readiness Program, a strong international study abroad program, and comprehensive entrepreneurial training, your résumé and your skills will be up to par for landing a position in your field. The proof is in the numbers: data shows that one average 90 percent of UNIBusiness graduates either find employment or continue their education at graduate or professional schools within six months of graduation.

So if you're wondering what you should major in, think about the certainty of getting that first job and making 20 percent more money at it compared to the average bachelor's degree-getter. A business degree seems to make pretty good business sense.
