The Value of a Post Graduate Education
It is a common knowledge that professionals that have a post graduate education earn more than those that do not. For example, a University of Maryland study that analyzed data from 50,000 IT professionals found that IT professionals with an MBA earn 46 percent more than peers who have a bachelor's degree.
No matter what industry you are in, getting a masters or doctorate degree inside and outside your field will enhance your career substantially. It also broadens your horizons and enables you to see the world with a different perspective. Many find post graduate programs an excellent platform to network with industry peers and possibly, form lifetime friendships.
So how tough can it be to get a post graduate degree? The first challenge is to qualify for a course – most programs require a basic degree with some working experience. Some colleges and universities accept students whom may have lower academic qualifications, but are able to substantiate their suitability with extensive working experience under their belts and or an admissions test.
After meeting the qualifications, you will then have to consider financing options. Some of you may have saved up for this purpose, but those who havn’t, there is plenty of financing options available ranging from bank loans, installment programs and such. You will find that the Return on Investments (ROI) of the post graduate program more often pays for itself in a very short period of time!
But the toughest part must be staying the course of the program and graduating. For many, studying full time may not be an option. There’s plenty of part time and weekend courses available.
More importantly, ensure that you only enrol in an accredited and recognised institutions, as there are plenty of ‘degree mills’ out there masquarading as genuine instituions. This is where PGEF2009 strict participation policies kick in – only colleges and universities that are registered and recognised by their respective accreditation authorities are admitted into the exhibition.
