The summer is a time for undergraduates to celebrate the end of their final assessments, a time for reflection and celebration and a well-earnt rest, but as the dust settles thoughts naturally move to a graduate’s next steps.
Pursuing an MSc is considered necessary for career-advancement but what other things should be considered?
- Specialise and broaden – Open up new career options whilst achieving a more competitive, higher-level qualification. It gives both specialist skills and diversification into new areas of business; offering you and employers a broader skills set.
- Employability – Our MSc graduates are highly sought after and programmes can offer a shorter route to fulfilling professional ambitions. Benefit from many employability events, industry links, careers and library services.
- Short-duration – One of the positives is its short duration of one year. The benefits of entering your career at a higher level and with greater insight, maturity and ability far outweigh associated living costs and fees of a single-year.
- Finances – UEA undergraduates exclusive discounts – a 1st degree attracts 50% and a 2:1 attracts a £4k discount. With increased earnings potential, it becomes an attractive proposition. Courses range from £10k to £14k EU and £18-£19.5k International (plus discounts) – loans available.
- Practice over theory – Outdated thinking assumes post-graduate study cannot replace employment experience; however post-graduates can demonstrate skills and confidence through applied challenges, at a more comprehensive level.
- Career advancement – At its heart, a postgraduate degree prepares for a career in management and leadership; giving tools and skills to adapt in a changing global environment, with associated earnings potential.
- Providing clarity – Giving students a one-year intensive introduction to the world of work gives clarity over career choices and helps to discover personal skills and strengths, interests and an individualised career path.
- Academics – Our research-led Business School attracts highly qualified academic and research staff, enriching our teaching and giving strong and diverse industry links. Low student-to-staff ratios mean greater contact and support.
- Culture – Our internationalised culture gives a global perspective, also embedded within the learning. We have created a special atmosphere of co-operation, understanding and shared knowledge; which extends into campus life.
- Research – Some elect to progress to a PhD doctorate, following MSc. Norwich Business School, UEA and the research park community offer one of the best places globally to pursue a career in research and academia.
