Its the starting salary. BComs (even stuff like Accounting) tend to start pretty low but catch up fast with raises.How can a BCom degree be below a BEd, general BSc and BTech? I can't believe that.
you can't really get a job with a bcomm, you need a post grad with it, thats my view atleast
There are many software developers, marketing analysts, hr professionals, project managers, IT architects, etc who might disagree. The only BCom streams that require post graduate qualifications to legally practice are accounting and law. Obviously streams like statistics and economics lend themselves more to further postgraduate study too.

This is very scary, less than R20k for an engineer? Granted you don't know a whole lot straight out of varsity, but is tough going!
Its no wonder so many people are leaving SA... Plus everything is becoming increasingly more expensive, you have to pay for medical (R1000), insurance (R500), rent (R5000)... After all deductions you maybe have R8000 or so left? Tough...
The point I was making, was that if you want to earn "real" money, you should look at the long picture.CAs have post grad qualifications, the article refers just to your first degree.

Sure you might earn more initially doing BSc Engineering or BSc Computer Science, but a few years later...
eg. R19,069pm as an engineer is nothing compared what directors of JSE listed companies earn in share options.
