Which degree is the right choice for your ambitions and career path?
In these uncertain times investing in your personal development and education can be the right move to position you for further opportunities and to future-proof your career. A postgraduate degree from a renowned school provides you with the skills, network, and qualification to progress in your career.
A Masters degree is usually a consecutive course that builds on your previous undergraduate degree. The benefit of a Masters is certainly the variety of different programs for many scientific fields.
Graduating with a Masters of Arts or Masters of Science makes you the expert in your field of studies and provides you with the scientific knowledge and foundations. Most students start their Masters program straight after completing their first degree. Thus, you enter the job market with a higher qualification and with a higher entry salary.
Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is targeted at professionals with, in most cases, a minimum of two years work experience. In contrast to a Masters, the MBA is non-consecutive, meaning that students come not only from business subjects, but many more disciplines. Thus, the MBA classroom is much more diverse in terms of professional backgrounds, industries and experience.
Preparing future leaders and managers, it is a great qualification for employees who are looking at a career change or who aim to acquire the relevant skills. This can be an engineer or IT specialist who will take on the leadership of a team and is in need of not only scientific skills in business and management classes, but also soft skills. Case studies and industry projects as well as strong connections to companies are a major key point of the MBA curriculum.
