Business, though down 2.3% year on year, still ranks second, accounting for 17.9% of the total.
Meanwhile, the number of students in mathematics and computer science increased by 11.3%.
There are two reasons why STEM has always been dominant:
one is that the United States is in the leading position in this field and has core competitiveness in the global workplace; the other is that the employment prospects in this field are good and there is a general advantage of high salaries.
