Michael Cameron recently blogged on this topic. Research out of the UK has revealed the most lucrative subjects to study at university in order to get the highest paying salaries.

Economics graduates fair the best with earnings in the region of £45,000 five years after university. This is closely followed by law graduates who can expect to earn £42,000 and Maths or Statistics graduates who earn on average £39,000.
