BEST DEGREES TO STUDY TO GET A HIGH IT SALARY IN SOUTH AFRICA

BEST DEGREES TO STUDY TO GET A HIGH IT SALARY IN SOUTH AFRICA

MyBroadband’s 2018 Salary Survey results revealed that Master of Business Administration (MBA or MBL) graduates enjoy the highest average salaries of all IT professionals.

The salary survey was conducted in September and was completed by 2,695 IT professionals in South Africa.

To ensure accurate results, various filters were applied to eliminate entries which were unlikely to be a true reflection of local salaries and perceptions of the industry.

The results showed what most people already know – a higher qualification typically means that you will get a higher salary.

There was, however, one exception. IT professionals with only a matric earned more than those who did a certification or diploma.

The likely reason for this is that many IT professionals, like programmers, are self-taught and can demand high salaries because of their skill and experience.
