The 2012 Salary Survey (pdf) conducted by the National Association of Colleges & Employers found graduates with math degrees had an average starting salary of $43,800. Graduates who took jobs in insurance, management consulting, computer systems design, and manufacturing started with salaries above $50,000.

Graduate and Professional School Preparation

The problem solving skills and perseverance gained through studying mathematics also prepares students for graduate and professional schools. In fact, students majoring in mathematics outperform other students on required graduate school standardized tests.

A study conducted by the National Institute of Education, comparing the scores of 550,000 college students who took the LSAT and GMAT, found that students majoring in mathematics scored substantially higher than the average on graduate and law school admission tests.
