Why Earn Your Master’s? 

In fields as diverse as business, education, healthcare and STEM, advanced degrees are no longer an option – they’re essential.

Employers are placing greater emphasis on top talent who can enter a role and make an immediate impact. 

As a result, a growing number of working adults are going back to school to earn their master’s.

It can open doors for advancement within your company and help you reach for high-reward roles in all new occupations or business ventures. So you can continue to evolve along with a fast-changing workforce.

1. Could boost earning potential

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported median weekly earnings of $1,497 for master’s degree holders in 2019. This figure is a 19.9% wage increase from bachelor’s degree holders and 68.7% wage increase from associate degree holders.1 It is also well above the median weekly earnings for all workers in 2019 ($917).1

2. Prepare for your future

Continuing your education may also result in greater career opportunities down the road. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 15% increase in jobs requiring master’s degrees through 2029. Comparatively, jobs requiring a bachelor’s degree are only set to grow by 6.4%.1

These figures signal big challenges for those who have yet to earn a graduate degree – and not just entry level professionals. As SNHU graduate Lisa Kpotie '16 can attest, even seasoned job seekers with years of experience need continued education to go further.

“I started to realize that in order to be more marketable in my field, I needed to go back to school,” she said. Now, thanks to the MS Accounting degree program at SNHU, she’s taken her career to the next level.

“Getting my master’s … allowed me to branch out and open my own [business].”

3. Reduce likelihood of unemployment

Degree holders are also less likely to be unemployed. In 2019, the BLS reported a 2% unemployment rate for those who earned their master’s.1

4. Additional benefits of a master’s degree

Earning potential, future planning and increased employment opportunities aren’t the only possible benefits of earning a master’s – for some, it’s the sense of personal fulfillment.

Jessica Cooper ’14 is one such case. As a veteran and military spouse, her decision to go back wasn’t only for herself – it was for the people she cared about.

“I was the first in my family to ever obtain a degree of any kind,” she said. “I never in a million years dreamed I would [earn an MBA], but I’m so glad I did it.”
