Earlier this year, one of Canada’s trusted banks, the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), released a list of the 10 most valuable degrees in Canada. We’ve combed through this list to identify a few trends and lay out your best options for Canadian studies!
A whopping 4 out of the 10 top earning degrees are in the field of engineering. So, if you want to ensure you’ll be making a good salary after you graduate, engineering is a good option for you! Engineering requires a strong background in mathematics and sciences, with a heightened ability in the specific type of engineering being undertaken. RBC includes the following four types of engineers on their list:
Many engineering degrees also include a mandatory internship or a period of co-op work during studies. These are excellent options for international students, as having Canadian work experience will be a big advantage when moving into the Canadian job market!
As the population of Canada is aging, the Canadian healthcare system is constantly expanding to meet its new demands. With healthcare expanding, so is the need for healthcare professionals, with two different healthcare options landing on today’s list: nurses and pharmacists. Those with the passion for science and the compassion for humanity will be able to carve out job security upon graduating in Canada.
The fields of nursing and pharmacology are both regulated in Canada, so those wishing to practice these professionally should expect to go through an examination and licensing process upon graduation. However, once you’ve landed your license, it shouldn’t be long before you find a job!
For high earning degrees, it should come as no surprise that several business and finance programs made the list. After all, every successful business has to have a strong leader and a team of business administrators to keep things running smoothly. If you have a passion for business, management, and administration, pursuing one of these degrees will give you high hopes of employment after graduation:
If you’ve already completed a degree and you have some business experience, you may be eligible to pursue a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) in Canada. This degree is a great option for those wishing to take on leadership roles with their future employment.
