Mathematics - A Springboard For Career Advancement

Obtaining a Mathematics Degree can be beneficial not only from a knowledge standpoint but also from a salary standpoint.  In this CNNMoney article, it is stated that insiders say the undergraduate degree in mathematics remains a solid springboard for career advancement -- especially when coupled with courses in computer science or economics.

Proof In The Statistics
As can be seen below, the May 2006 Bureau of Labor Statistics reveal that the mean wages for mathematical and computer science occupations were nearly double the average of all occupations.  The CNNMoney article also suggests that a combination of a degree in Mathematics and some Computer Science makes one more valuable than a graduate without the computer science course work.
