People attend graduate schools for as many reasons as there are master’s degree programs to choose from. Maybe you want to increase your ability to compete in a job market where continuing your education can mean a promotion, a raise, and more credibility. Perhaps you simply want to grow as a person and a professional. Whatever the case, if you’re looking to earn a graduate degree, but aren’t able to attend a full-time program, an online master’s degree program might be for you.
“You should get your master’s degree to leverage out your educational value,” says Ulysses Wilcox, a graduate of Walden University’s online Master of Science in leadership program. “Obtaining your master’s degree can open up many doors, many opportunities where at some point you may not think it exists with just having a bachelor’s degree.”
For many, online master’s degree programs are a means of moving up in their existing jobs. That story was certainly true for Ulysses. “That’s the decision I made, and I think it’s beneficial,” he says. “It’s advantageous for anyone who desires better opportunities in their workplace or … some type of professional advancement, the master’s degree is the way to go.”
