A new study of the future hiring plans of employers in a range of fields suggests that students may maximize their job opportunities by obtaining one of the five most in-demand bachelor's degrees, reports Yahoo Education.

The research was conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). According to its website, this group connects campus recruiting and career professionals and provides a range of services, research and information related to the job market.

NACE's top degree was a bachelor's in accounting, followed closely by finance, a related field. Coming in at number three was engineering, with electrical and mechanical engineering proving to be the most lucrative sub-fields. Number four on the list was computer science, while a bachelor's in business administration came in at number five.

"As is typically the case, business and engineering majors, plus those earning degrees in technical fields, including computer science, are most in demand at the bachelor's degree level," NACE wrote in its "2011 Job Outlook" report.
