Mathematical Content of Curricula and Beginning Salaries of Graduating Students
Lee, B. Brian; Lee, Jungsun
Journal of Education for Business, v84 n6 p332-338 Jul-Aug 2009
The authors examined an association between mathematical content in college-level curricula and beginning salaries of graduating students on the basis of data collected from a public university in the southern region of the United States. The authors classified the mathematical content requirements of the curricula into the following 5 groups according to the number of mathematics courses required and their content: (a) Group 1 (1 elective in basic mathematics), (b) Group 2 (2 electives in basic mathematics), (c) Group 3 (Business Mathematics I and II), (d) Group 4 (Engineering Mathematics I and II), and (e) Group 5 (more than 2 courses in advanced mathematics). Graduates from Group 5 earned $10,383 more than did those from Group 1. (Contains 5 tables.)
