maybe you should not be so defensive. good day
Agreed! well i dont think all business are highest paid. i think it is based on the industry and field. an engineering student can also get an econs or banking job. then they will be grouped as business when rightfully they are from engineering.

However, i do wish to point out that i DISAGREE on such generic statements like "engineering is much more difficult than biz as its logical and maths based but biz is only common sense and some technical terms that you need to know."

It reeks of arrogance especially since you are stating you are from an engineering background.

Maybe you care to logically explain why the highest paid fresh grads are from business schools ? Such companies must not have a lot of common sense right ?
once again. just to further counter your last point on fresh grads

://.moe.gov.sg/education/post-secondary/files/ges-ntu.pdf

maybe i read it wrongly. enlighten me.

but perhaps you meant eventually people working in biz will get higher salary. yes that i will totally agree. but that is not limited to biz grads only. but biz fresh grads are definitively not highest paid and not better than engineering according to the pdfs i linked.

You can study engineering, invent something and become a billionaire

Chill down guys. So I have decided to work first for bout 2-3 years and have signed a company contract today. Maybe after 2-3 years I will purse a part time degree, so in the mean time I will just get working experience and also at the same time find out what my real interest is. Is it gonna be business or engineering.

good for you! experience is very underrated. get more of it. now just be humble and keep learning and build up your resume. and yes attitude is very important now. if you are good you might even get headhunted.
