Students

Before making a final decision and taking steps toward choosing a program, please consider the following:

When is the best time to consider obtaining an advanced degree?
Certain careers definitely require an advanced degree (medicine, scientific research), while many others offer brilliant entry-level opportunities for undergraduate degree holders. Do not consider going immediately to graduate school as a default move, for some careers it is
better to gain some work/life experience first.
What is the best graduate degree for you?
Professional Master’s degrees, such as a Master of Business Administration (MBA), are designed for employment or advancement within a given field. Academic degrees, such as a Master of Science (MS), are designed for intellectual growth and (sometimes) a prerequisite for doctoral work within a given field. The Doctor of Philosophy Degree (Ph.D.) is the highest possible earned academic degree.
What is the best school/program for you?
We have developed a list of universities you could use to choose a program and find out the timelines and contact details. The list includes the leading universities of North America, Europe, UK, Asia, and Pacific. It is divided into three tabs, one for every undergraduate school.
