The Council of Graduate Schools and Educational Testing Service released a survey recently that states the job market will be pushing more for individuals with advanced degrees in the future. You don’t exactly need Nostradamus to figure that out, but it is a valid point that as the complexity of technology and business deepens, so must the knowledge required to work in related fields.
If you think about how much the business climate has changed over the past decade or two, virtually every aspect has been affected by the evolution of the Internet and the rapid deployment of information between any electronically-connected places on the planet. Graduate school fits into this puzzle by providing the raw education and skills to understand and interpret these trends and evolve yourself to stay competitive.
According to the report, nearly 20% more jobs are expected to require a Ph.D. or Masters degree by 2020 alone in the USA. When you bring the salary potential into the picture, it makes grad school look like a no-brainer.
