A recent study in the United States shows that a Bachelor's degree in Information Systems increases the chance of getting a job significantly, along with higher starting salaries.

The Association for Information System (AIS) reports that "according to the 2019 Information Systems Jobs Index, a Bachelor’s degree in IS boasts a 70 percent placement rate upon graduation, which is higher than both the reported average for business-school placement rate (59 percent) and the national cumulative rate (58 percent). Additionally, the average salary offer for IS undergraduates ($65,314) is the highest among all business-school majors."

“The report shows that IS jobs pay well, that the students are well-trained, and that they are excited about starting their career,” says index co-author Munir Mandviwalla, Associate Professor and Executive Director of the Institute for Business and Information Technology.
