Skills from Online Learning
Students are able to immediately apply new strategies and tactics at their jobs due to the fast-paced, dynamic nature of online education. Also, being an online student provides students with the soft skills that are in-demand in the workplace, including time management, communication, collaboration, teamwork, critical thinking, problem-solving and ability to multitask.
Professionals who hold a master’s degree earn a higher median salary than those with less education, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In fact, graduate degree holders earn 19% more than those with a bachelor’s degree.
Additionally, master’s degree holders are less likely to be unemployed compared to those with only a bachelor’s degree.
Earning a graduate degree can help job candidates remain competitive, not only in professions that require graduate-level education, but in careers with fewer education requirements. For example, the BLS reports among all occupations in 2013, business, financial and sales positions had some of the highest earning premiums for those with a master’s degree.
Select occupations in which workers with a master’s degree earned more than workers with a bachelor’s degree, as of 2013 include:
