11 Oct Should you consider pursuing a master’s degree from abroad during Covid
If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that we live in a highly globalized world, and we all can come out of this situation with the support of each other. Everything might look doom and gloom at this moment, but the silver lining is that it shows us how flexible and adaptive humans are.
With every sector experiencing a drastic change in the working and operational scenario; education is the segment which has been experiencing a huge transformation. When it comes to higher education; majority of educational institutions / universities / colleges in India are operating through wired or online education these days. But there are also multiple challenges to the various contributors involved in this and they vary from its role or aspiration of the contributor. Like, for Educational Institutions, arranging for the infrastructure to accommodate the online education, training the staff with some basics, restructuring the entire academic calendar, realigning the theoretical and practical subjects etc. From a student’s perspective, frankly through online modules they are feeling like their education is on a toss.
But as it is said, a true leader always knows how to make the best out of the bad. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing global unemployment figures to rise to unprecedented levels, a recent analysis by a job platform Totaljobs suggests two-thirds of unemployed people are using this time to reevaluate their career choices.
In the same report, 70 percent of workers said they are considering changing career paths entirely, with more than half driven by the desire to either challenge their potential or learn a new skill set. In the competition to retain their opportunities, many are now considering the value of higher education and the benefits it offers when it comes to lifelong learning, improved skill sets, and better income opportunities.
Experts have stated that this could be the best time to explore your interest and to pursue a master’s program. With the fast-paced globalization and the cutthroat competition, having a master’s degree will become basic eligibility for any job prospect shortly. While nobody can offer a prediction as to how the global economy will change in the next 6 months, 12 months, or 24 months, having an awareness of industry and market trends is as important as keeping your finger on the pulse of the employment market.
