Sorry, I was intrigued with the salary article and I stumbled upon another article from CNN that dealt with earnings of the class of 2008.

It seems like chemical engineering was one of the most profitable major with graduating students immediately earning on average $63,749. Economics major usually had start up salaries of $52,926.
