Pursuing a Master’s Degree Is a Worthwhile Investment

By Deidree R. Diño, MSc, PGCM, Head of Admissions

Webster Vienna’s American-style graduate programs stand out with their culture of mentorship, small class sizes, interactive discourse and collaboration between students and faculty, and experiential learning. Even as the world faces an unprecedented crisis with the Covid-19 pandemic, Webster Vienna remains at the forefront by planning for and offering hybrid and small-sizes classes - practicing acceptable social-distance standards with excellence in face-to-face teaching in small groups, as well as allowing students overseas who are unable to travel, the opportunity to attend synchronous and asynchronous classes through Webster Vienna’s student technology platforms, online classroom resources, and virtual meeting software programs.  

Globalization has made the world a much smaller place, especially when it comes to career opportunities. Corporations and organizations now easily recruit managers and executives from all over the world and employers consider an advanced level of professional knowledge, insight, and understanding to be highly beneficial if not essential qualifications for leadership positions, no matter the industry. 

Within this competitive global landscape, pursuing a Master’s degree has become a worthwhile investment. As the number of students earning a university degree more than doubled in the past twenty years[1], any professional who desires career advancement or simply wants more attractive job opportunities will also have to present better educational credentials apart from work experience. 

Searching for a quality master’s degree program however has turned into a research project. With so many universities offering “top international” master’s degrees, it is so easy to be drawn to programs that look great on paper. University rankings lack value when paid for by universities with impressive marketing budgets. 

At Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU), our master’s degree programs are geared towards an international mindset, not only because the language of instruction is English. WVPU has invested and continues to invest in reputable, truly international faculty comprised of exemplary researchers and seasoned professionals from more than thirty countries. 

Webster Vienna’s American-style graduate programs stand apart with its culture of mentorship, small class sizes, interactive discourse and collaboration between students and faculty, and experiential learning. Programs meet strict accreditation standards in Austria and by extension, the European Higher Education Area, combining rigorous research and critical application of both classical and novel theories, frameworks, and time-tested as well as contemporary practices in real-life situations and case studies.

If you plan to invest in a master’s degree, choose wisely. Let us help you start your journey of personal and professional development with a Webster Vienna master’s degree in Business and Management, International Relations, or Counseling Psychology.
