Top Degrees For Getting Hired In 2016


We keep hearing that the way to get ahead is with an engineering or computer science degree. Studying business can also be a good idea. But which degree exactly will make you most desirable to employers? A study released this month by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a Bethlehem, PA non-profit that links college career placement offices with employers, reveals which majors its members are looking for among the class of 2016.

NACE got responses to questionnaires it sent out from early August through mid-September from 201 companies, asking about their plans to hire people who will be graduating from college and graduate school at the end of this academic year. The respondents were mostly big companies like Aetna, Chevron, DuPont, Procter & Gamble and Macy’s.


So which majors do employers most want? NACE broke out the top 11 degrees for those earning bachelor’s and the top 10 degrees for master’s and doctorate grads. Not surprising, STEM degrees rate the highest, with accounting topping the undergrad list, computer science scoring No. 1 for master’s students and electrical engineering for those with doctorates.

We’ve put together three charts below showing the specific degrees most in demand and the number of respondents who said they would hire in each discipline




Social science and humanities majors don’t make any of the lists of top majors. But they need not despair. Several other charts in the report show that 40 of the 200 employers are planning to hire communications majors, 33 will hire economics majors, 14 are planning for psychology grads and eight hope to hire English language and literature majors. Social work ranks at the bottom of the social science list, with only seven employers planning to hire from that field and “area & gender studies” is at the bottom of the humanities list with a mere one employer looking for that major
