The third place is occupied by technicians in marketing with an average income of S / 2,504.

Also, it was known that the technical career with the highest number of enrollments was accounting and finance with an average salary of 1,787 soles. With this information, it is evident that students are not going necessarily for those careers where they could make the most money with.

He pointed out that in a country where the socio-economic and geographical reality is so diverse, the occupational demand and the distribution of technical professionals are very complex.
