In their first year Giviens reported business  administration degree holders can earn an average of $46,000, a Finance degree could get around $48,000, and marketing degrees get an average $41,000. An Arts degree can be used in thprivate sector, she continued, but comes in with an average first year paycheck of $24,800. For High school grads entering the workforce or furthering their education Givens said, retail and trucking is still a big part of the Austin and Texas economy and forsees long term growth within healthcare, IT and the alternative energy industry.
