When it comes to student return on investment, differences in marketplace value among fields of study means that students are often able to earn higher salaries with significantly less education, because what they make no longer depends on “how many degrees” are earned or “where you go to college,” said Anthony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, during a recent episode of “In Focus” from Georgetown’s School of Continuing Studies.¬†¬†Carnevale said there’s a $3.3 million career-earnings difference between the highest-paying bachelor’s degree and the lowest-paying bachelor’s degree, and because of this gap, 40% of people with bachelor’s degrees make more than those with graduate degrees, on average.
