Masters or not ?

 
#1 Masters or not ?

Hello. I am going to graduate shortly with a Bachelors degree. I am keen on entering the world of Management Consulting. I am also considering doing a Masters degree in Information Systems. Will by employability be enhanced if I do a Masters from a reputable Uni. PLease note that my underrgrad is not from a "red bricks" uni. Do masters graduates get higher positions that undergrad graduates? And what abt salary? Please advice. Thanks.

Dear Person,

Dont waste your time studying, experience is more important, as long as its relevant to your intended industry choice.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. So, you feel that firms tend to favour experience over specialised degrees. Does this mean that a masters graduate with limited or no work experience will get a same role as a graduate with some work experience? What about future career growth? Does a masters degree enhance or quicken career growth compared to just a gradute degree? Please advice. Cheers

If you want to get in consulting and your degree is not from a red brick, then do the Masters at a great uni. You're pushing it to expect to come in at a higher level, though. As to salary, it depends what bit of consulting you want to do (e.g. process, change, IT, startegy etc) and who you want to do it with

don't bother with further study. get out there and start demonstrating your capabilities in the real world. And certainly don't bother with an MBA unless its from one of the very top schools - the whole MBA currency is now seriously devalued.

hi sharat, i was in exactly the same dilemma as you and am now a month into my masters degree at UMIST with a semester abroad at Bocconi, Milan. the chance to go and study and live abroad for five months i think is going to be life experience in itself. and my masters is in International business and management which is quite broad but we still have the chance to specialise at dissertation which is done April -Sept. I will be ready for sure to wave goodbye to academia after all this, but i think it totally depends on what masters you choose and where... I would recommend UMIST if you are considering courses.. Good luck with it anyway. nimi
