Swiss university graduates are best paid in Europe

Swiss universities produce the best-paid graduates in Europe, according to salary-benchmarking site Emolument, reports Economia.

Emolument rounded up the top 30 European universities with the highest paid graduates, with graduates from the University of St Gallen in Switzerland topping the list with average salaries of £160,000 (US$211,000). Three more Swiss universities made the top five, while the London Business School ranked fifth, with graduates earning average salaries of £102,000.

Despite Swiss universities topping the list with graduates earning 40% more than their UK peers from top universities, the report highlighted that Switzerland’s 40% higher cost of living means the pay gap disappears.
