There are various factors that determine the choice of  degree course to pursue but the most important of all is the amount of salary that one will earn. The higher the amount of salary a job   attracts the more competitive the degree course that leads to the job becomes.

 

However, there are other key factors that  determine degree choice apart from salary like passion, aptitude and interest. There are also those degree programmes  that have limited number of vacancies in the job market yet many students flock to do them. Why? This is an article of another day.

 

It should however be noted that your  choice of degree course  is not a guarantee of success in life. It is all about how much  time you invest in developing your brand. Everything you do each waking  day contributes to your brand.
