The average annual salary for a business major in 2012 was $54,000, according to Forbes. This figure was the result of a 7.1 percent industry increase from the previous year.
Business majors can expect to earn more than the salary of the average college graduate with a bachelor's degree, which was $45,000 in 2013. The salary of an individual business major depends on which type of job the graduate accepts. For example, a graduate with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree can expect to earn between $42,418 and $72,627 as a financial analyst and between $35,464 and $64,524 as an accountant.
