Many admission professionals take on a master’s degree program early in their career; for others, the pursuit of an advanced degree might come later, alongside a significant amount of additional responsibilities and commitments. What are the pros and cons of this later start? How can one utilize advanced knowledge of the industry to complement one’s education?

In this episode of Admissions Live, we’ll break down some of the benefits and potential pitfalls of this educational timeline. We’ll also speak to the pros and cons of pursuing a career at one college or university, and how to take full advantage of the networks at and beyond that institution to grow as a professional.
