Want to have a lucrative career?

Consider pursuing a job in finance, accounting, or consulting.

People in these professions typically earn pretty sizeable paychecks – and that’s even more true for business grads of certain colleges.

To find the the schools where business students go on to earn the most money in their careers, we looked at PayScale’s recent College Salary Report.

PayScale, the creator of the world’s largest compensation database, looked at the starting and mid-career pay for over a million college grads – including professionals who graduated with a bachelor’s from 963 colleges and universities.

Its College Salary Report, which was compiled using data from employees who successfully completed PayScale’s employee survey, sorts the results by school, degree, and college major.

Here are the colleges where students with a bachelor’s in business go on to earn the most money 10-plus years into their career:
