It keeps you engaged with research in your area and allows you to develop enhanced professional networking opportunities with experts in your field of research.
“A higher degree such as a Masters enhances your career options so that you can transition into senior positions in the workplace. A Masters qualification also affords you the prospect to progress to a doctoral qualification.”
