The Value of a Graduate Degree
Increase your job prospects
By earning your master’s degree, you can develop expertise in a field you’re passionate about while increasing your value in the eyes of employers. It can also qualify you for leadership positions that require a graduate degree.
Boost your salary potential
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage in 2016 for full-time workers ages 25 and over with a master’s degree was 19% higher than those with just a bachelor’s degree.
Expand your network
Graduate students have the chance to build professional relationships for life. You’ll work closely with classmates on a variety of team projects and get to know professors, alumni, mentors and donors who can serve as valuable connections throughout your career.
