Choosing the Right Program
When considering going back to school to further your education, it’s important to consider a few things: your schedule, your interests and your professional goals. Whether you seek to change careers or advance in your current role, look for a program that fits your needs.
Below are a few tips on what to consider when exploring your degree options.
- Look for program objectives that align closely to your professional and personal goals and that will also be beneficial in your current or future work setting.
- Speak to colleagues and your manager about their educational background and see if there is a common trend with the type of degrees those in higher positions may have obtained.
- Research trends in educational requirements and needs based on your position or professional goals. The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, offers information about level of degree and emerging trends in the workforce based on occupational data.
- As a busy working professional, online degree programs can provide the flexibility to work school around a busy life.
Selecting the right degree program can be difficult. At AIU we offer graduate degrees across multiple areas of study to ensure that you can find one that fits your unique needs and goals.
Ways to Move Your Education Forward
We know that AIU students and alumni want to be in control of their professional growth. However, this can be easier said than done. Sometimes even the most motivated and driven professionals aren't sure how to take that next step, especially in a competitive marketplace. Here are a few places to start:
Becoming a member of a local chapter of a national organization relevant to your industry can plug you in to a network of others in your field. Joining an organization could also lead to events, seminars and knowledge-sharing opportunities.
Company Employee Development Programs
Many companies today offer development programs to further grow and train their employees. Development programs may range from professional coaching to cross-training. If you aren’t sure of the opportunities offered at your company, contact your HR department to learn more.
Webcasts, Seminars & Conventions
Attending webcasts, seminars and conventions may offer additional knowledge sharing between individuals in the same field, plus opportunities to learn more about other industries you may be interested in.
Investing in Your Education
Continuing your education with a graduate-level degree may also support continued growth. Look for programs that are focused on industry-relevant coursework, taught by knowledgeable faculty with experience in their field of study. If you're planning to attend school while working you may want to consider an online program, which may offer more flexibility than a traditional program.
AIU cannot guarantee employment, salary, or career advancement. University grants or scholarships are based on established criteria as published in the University’s Catalog or on its website and are awarded after verification that the conditions of eligibility have been met.
