Are you looking for opportunities that can unleash your career potential at home or abroad? If it feels like you are short on prospects, the international Master’s degree can take you where you want to go.
Graduate studies are designed for Bachelor’s degree holders who need that extra step in their education to gain a competitive edge in the pool of job applicants. International Master’s programmes, which usually take one or two years to complete, have unique ways to develop your professional skills and interpersonal qualities.
Find a job abroad
Every year, reports outlining the employment prospects for young graduates prove that companies would like to hire more international Master’s degree holders. Survey results collected by research provider GMAC show that most companies in Europe (72%) planned to hire Master’s in Management graduates in 2018. At the same time, almost half of surveyed employers from the US were interested in hiring international talent. This is important for South Africa’s youth as many local students over the past years have shown interest in these destinations.
If the numbers are not enough to convince you of the universal value of the degree, just remind yourself that the world we live in is increasingly dynamic and interconnected. More than ever, organisations are in need of globally-minded talent equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge in their field.
Build a regional career
Just as the Master’s degree can open the door to a career abroad, it can also improve your hiring prospects in your home country. As the pool of job applicants is quite competitive, having the international diploma on your CV/resume can be a major advantage for you if you plan to return to South Africa or the region after graduation.
Attending Master’s studies abroad will give you the toolkit necessary to excel in your specialization of choice as well as the ability to thrive in today’s dynamic work environment. The ultimate way to give back to your home country and contribute to its economic and social status is by investing in your own future.
At this year’s Access Masters events in Johannesburg on August 27th and in Cape Town on August 30th you will have the opportunity to discover much more about the value of the degree. Professional test preparation and CV/resume advice, discounts on relevant prep courses, and the chance to win a campus visit to a university of your choice are just some of the perks you can expect at the events. Participants will also receive exclusive guidance on how to finance their graduate studies.
