Are Master Degrees the next Bachelor Degrees?

Posted by & filed under All Subjects, International Education.


As the world becomes increasingly competitive people are working very hard to stand out from the crowd. Having a bachelor degree has now become the equivalent of having a high school diploma 15 years ago.  When you state you have a Bachelors degree, people want to know what else you have. The rise of micro-degrees, certificates, and online degrees is booming. According to Loan Consortium and the Babson Survey Research, a 2011 survey reveals  that the number of students learning online has now surpassed six million, with nearly one-third of all students in higher education taking at least one online course. Online education is attractive because it is more affordable than traditional education, has no time and no distance limitations and can offer those working full-time jobs the opportunity to further their education.
