Advance your career with a Postgraduate Degree

A Postgraduate Degree can open windows of opportunities for career advancement or a career switch. You will gain new insights to complement your professional development and expand your network with like-minded individuals.


Benefits of Obtaining a Postgraduate Degree

  1. Increase your earning potential

    Higher earning potential is one of the most cited reasons for enrolling in a Postgraduate Degree programme. Compared to a Bachelor’s Degree, a Postgraduate Degree has been found to improve a candidate’s financial prospects.

    According to PayScale Singapore, an MBA candidate commands 2.1 times higher salary per annum compared to a candidate who has a Bachelor’s Degree qualification.

    While an Executive Masters of Business Administration candidate’s average salary per annum is 2.8 times higher than a Bachelor’s Degree candidate.

    Qualifications Average Annual Salary
    Bachelor’s Degree S$50,000
    Master of Business Administration (MBA) S$104,000
    Executive Masters of Business Administration (EMBA) S$139,000
  2. Increase your employability

    More professionals are pursuing Postgraduate Degrees today, and because of this, a Bachelor’s Degree qualification alone can sometimes fail to get you noticed alongside equally or more highly qualified candidates. With a university education presently viewed as more a rite of passage in securing a job, candidates with only a Bachelor’s Degree may find it difficult to appeal to employers, even at entry-level positions in certain industries.

  3. Access to business network

    As a Postgraduate Degree student, you have many opportunities to network. In the professional world, networking is connecting with like-minded people in a professional context, and finding ways to collaborate, discuss and develop your own knowledge, skills and career. You can accentuate your business management capabilities at the same time.

  4. Open doors to thriving career opportunities

    Graduates of Postgraduate Degrees have higher chances of holding a senior-level management position and enjoy successful careers. You can choose to do an online Postgraduate Degree programme, which offers more flexibility and allows you to learn at your own pace.

  5. Pursue your interests in greater depth

    Although most Bachelor’s Degree programmes allow students the opportunity to choose disciplines of personal interest, a Master’s Degree does this to a much greater extent. You will be expected to conduct independent research in order to develop your thoughts and ideas regarding a field. Attending extracurricular activities and meetings, and hearing from guest speakers and lecturers ensure plenty of opportunities to engage in your subject from multiple angles. For many students with passionate academic interests, the experience itself provides ample satisfaction.

Technology-integrated Learning

Technology-integrated learning refers to a study experience in which students achieve a given set of learning outcomes by interacting in more than one medium.

This approach involves the meaningful and balanced use of digital media such as recorded lectures, podcasts, text or graphics, with other elements such as a video or quiz. It may even encompass active learning methods such as student-generated blogs, where appropriate.

With technology-integrated learning, students will not only reap the benefits of face-to-face guidance and collaboration, but also – in carrying out some of their learning online – benefit from added flexibility and control over the time, place, path and pace of learning.

Increase your market value with a Double Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Human Resources Management

Limiting your interests to just one Master’s Degree is not easy, especially when you are deciding between a few choices. On the other hand, a Double Master’s Degree allows you to satisfy your intellectual curiosity in more than just one field of interest.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is highly regarded qualification in the world. The MBA curriculum aims to strengthen your general management acumen as well as communication and leadership skills whereas a specialised business Master’s Degree aims to meet the market demands of a specific field gap. Although they are both very different degrees, they complement each other very well.
