Pursuing a higher degree, usually a master’s or a doctorate, is a big move to make. Whether you’re an employee trying to pursue a better position or a promotion, a business owner wanting to grow your network and acquire new skills to benefit the business or a professional looking to establish better academic reputation, going back to school and pursuing a higher degree is a good way to start.

The big question remains the same: is higher education worth the effort and costs? There are a few reasons why pursuing a higher degree can help you achieve more. We are going to take a closer look at some of those reasons in this article.

MORE CAREER OPTIONS AND BETTER REWARDS

There is no doubt that a higher degree can help you chase better positions. A lot of employees who feel stuck in the same position are actually happy with their decision to pursue a master’s degree, simply because they can land in a better position upon acquiring the degree. Some even benefit from the act of enrolling in a doctorate program, by getting promoted as soon as they start the course.

You can also expect better rewards in return for your upgraded qualifications. According to the Maryville University online EDD program, a Chief Academic Officer with a higher education leadership degree earns more than $200,000 a year, which is far more than those without a doctor in the field.

EASIER AND MORE AFFORDABLE

It is interesting to note that pursuing a higher degree is not nearly as difficult as you think. It is now possible to enroll in one of the top universities in the United States without moving to the U.S. You can still maintain a full-time job in Toronto while studying for the degree. All of this is possible thanks to the distance learning programs and online courses now widely available.

Universities are letting students from Canada to join their U.S. online programs, including the Maryville University mentioned earlier. There are plenty of fields to choose from as well, from the online EDD program to MBAs and Master of Science degrees.

Of course, online degrees are far more affordable than offline courses. There is no need to worry about the cost of relocating and living expenses, plus tuition fees and other charges are up to 40% more affordable with online degrees.

Instant Benefits

Lastly, your pursuit for a higher degree is often rewarded immediately. Be sure to notify the company about your enrollment in a master’s or doctorate program and HR will start considering you for a promotion.

During the course, you can expand your network, pick up new skills and find better opportunities to explore. These are all part of the experience; one that you can only enjoy when you choose to pursue the higher degree you have always wanted.

All you have to do now is get out of that comfort zone and take the first step. A degree can be yours in as little as 12 months.
