Always wanted to obtain your master’s but life kept getting in the way? How are you going to start studying again with all your existing commitments? Is there a flexible enough programme that can accommodate your needs and responsibilities?
Don’t worry, because UNITAR International University provides postgraduate courses that help you get your master’s and advance your career. Below are a few reasons you should do your master’s at UNITAR.
1. Career progression
In current society, having a bachelor’s degree brings you to a point in your career, beyond which you need a postgraduate qualification to further advance. At UNITAR, when you graduate with a bachelor’s degree or diploma, you graduate as an industry-ready professional who can readily contribute to your chosen workplace. If you want to be in the top of your game in your 50s, however, a postgraduate course should be in your cards.
UNITAR’s postgraduate degrees are offered as a way to smash the glass ceiling that comes with only having an undergraduate qualification, as well as provide skill enrichment and expertise diversification. Whether you choose to gain work experience after your bachelor’s studies or proceed to a master’s programme upon graduation, UNITAR provides courses for all your wants.
2. Becoming a field expert
When you obtain your master’s, you’ll have an in-depth understanding of your speciality and career focus. The qualification suggests expertise and credibility in a particular field and allows you to progress within your field. The specific knowledge you’ll possess in your field will increase your proficiency in a certain discipline, which then gives you an advantage at a time where many employers are raising their educational requirement for emerging positions.
3. Open the door to opportunities
Besides that, if you’re thinking of migrating overseas or relocating within the country, having a master’s gives you that freedom. Most employers around the world want qualified, capable people, and, as a master’s holder, you could be an attractive enough candidate to employers.
4. A sense of personal accomplishment
All those nights of hard work and dedication have finally paid off and having a master’s qualification is certainly something you should be proud of. When you have a master’s, you have more value as an industry expert. Receiving your master’s won’t only give you a greater confidence in your academic prowess, but also improve your ability to complete professional duties and move towards leadership positions.
