Earning a master’s degree can have a significant impact on your lifetime earnings and employability. Many studies have been conducted and articles written on the topic, but here are a few resources you can read for more information:

You may have earned your undergraduate degree and entered a career in a field like biology, history, or marketing. After working for a few years, you are ready to move up the career ladder. Typically, as you look at higher-level job opportunities, you will see they focus less on technical expertise and more on managerial expertise – i.e. the ability to lead people, analyze information, make good decisions, and plan strategically. The MSOL program is designed to supplement your technical background with the necessary management, leadership, and communication knowledge and skills needed to progress up the career ladder. As such, the program provides an excellent complement to almost any academic or professional background.
