You may be surprised – studying is an investment well worth pursuing.
In today’s economy, a bachelor degree will be worth $1 million more than a high school degree over 35 years. With each higher qualification, you increase your earning power. For example, the median salary for a new postgraduate was $23K higher than equivalent bachelor degree graduates (Graduate Careers Australia). And if you’re already working, completing further studies can only lead to promotions and higher salaries.
Consider VU's MBA, for instance. As a Tier 1 MBA, ranked highly for its teaching, small classes, student diversity and international study opportunities, VU also rates very well for affordability at less than half the cost of a Melbourne Business School MBA (CEO Magazine global rankings).
VU also offers a range of scholarships. Did you know your employer or professional industry bodies may also provide you with a scholarship? So be sure to do your research and ask the question - you could significantly reduce your study costs!
