Highest Paying Degree Courses in Kenya

593

There are specific degree courses which pay better than other degree courses in Kenya. But the bad thing is that the demand for such courses is high. For instance, a Medical Doctor earns at least Ksh 150,000 per month once employed. With more than 5 years of experience, he will pull in over Ksh300,000 monthly. In addition to the pay, this professional will also earn money from his side hustle.

One of the lowest courses to do in Kenya is Bachelor of Education. The highest amount you will ever earn is Ksh200,000 per month. Teachers are underpaid yet they do noble duties.
