An Advanced Degree Equals a Competitive Advantage

Earning a master’s degree helps you develop the specialized knowledge employers seek, making you stand out among other candidates. It is required for most middle- to upper-management positions as well as qualifying for most professional licenses or pursuing a doctorate degree.

According to The U.S. Census Bureau, having a master’s degree compared to just a bachelor’s degree, gives you the potential to earn $400,000 more over a lifetime, but it varies depending on the industry.
