Postgraduate studies: Useful or not?

At the high cost, you may be wondering if a postgraduate course is useful at all. The answer is yes, if he gives you exactly what you need. After all, a construction study can convey concrete knowledge, which is applied directly in the workplace.

Why a construction study?

But: Before you go to the selection of the postgraduate course, you should consider exactly why you are looking for a postgraduate degree. It should be considered how personal career planning looks like and whether a construction study is indeed the best and best instrument to achieve the personal goal and the lack of competences.

After all, whether or not a postgraduate course really does make a difference in the labor market ultimately depends on individual career goals. Those who work in Germany and would like to expand their abilities and competences but do not value the (international) name of their degree should look around Germany for a postgraduate course - which is generally cheaper than studying abroad. Who on the other hand in an internationally operating Company wants to start his career in Europe, which is well advised with a study program of a renowned university in Europe.

Study offers in the USA

Courses in the US, on the other hand, are primarily geared towards a local job. Nevertheless, US universities in particular have a very good reputation worldwide due to their long tradition and their extensive alumni networks, which also benefits European companies. Because: In many areas of the private sector, no formal recognition of an American degree is required. It only has to appeal to a potential employer or decide whether the training complies with the requirements of the job in question. Therefore, anyone planning postgraduate studies should inquire in advance in the industry concerned about how the desired degree will be entered into the labor market. Professional associations can help here.

In addition, you should inform yourself about forms, content and access requirements such as foreign languages ​​or professional experience, but also about study places abroad. But also possible consequences should be considered, for example, whether the willingness to accept impairment of private life is present, or whether the financing is clarified.

Studying Abroad

This is all the more true if you are planning to complete postgraduate studies abroad: because this too is very well possible now, because the recognition of degrees is becoming increasingly easier internationally. However, as European higher education degrees become more and more aligned, you should pay particular attention to the recognition of qualifications in the local labor market. Because even in Germany, for example, numerous postgraduateCourses with diploma or university certificate are offered. The latter is nothing more than a university-internal degree, the recognition of which is not always guaranteed even in the German labor market, since such certificates are often only known to local employers. On the other hand, it is better to choose a degree course with a diploma or - in view of recognition abroad - a master's degree.

Because the internationally recognized, coming from the Anglo-Saxon master, who has usually gone through an accreditation process, offers the chance of wide acceptance in the labor market. However, not all Master's programs are accredited and in some places, instead of new teaching methods and content, old curricula are simply recycled. Therefore, you should look carefully at the selection (more in the course How to find the right postgraduate course).
