I received a Masters Degree in Engineering Management. After getting my degree I was not financially rewarded, however, most of my degree was paid for by my employer. But I was the one who put in the time.
I eventually received a promotion. Maybe having this Masters Degree helped. Perhaps I could have moved to a new company to get a more significant raise sooner. But for me staying put made more sense in my life. It’s not all about getting more money. Sometimes education is just fun!
