If there is such a universally agreed upon best program, everyone would be taking it. The over saturation will make finding a job very competitive. The excess labour will drive salaries down in the field.

You should choose based on what you think you would LIKE to do and have a reasonable shot at doing a GOOD job. If you aren't good at math, don't pursue a career in computer programming or physics. You will tend to make more money when you enjoy your job and perform well. Ask yourself if you like to work with people or things. Do you prefer math or writing? How comfortable are you in dealing with people? Do you like hands on or abstract? The list of self reflection questions goes on and on.

A job is where someone pays you for getting something done. Naturally the more skilled and presentable you are, the better your chance of securing a higher income and open more doors.
