Post Graduation

POST GRADUATE COURSES – THE NEED OF THE HOUR

By the time one is done with one’s schooling and completing graduation, they have spent 15 to 16 years for their education. Often, some experience a burnout of sorts, some have financial issues to deal with, while many are simply excited to start working and be independent. The allure of a career and the financial independence it could provide is one major factor for youngsters to halt their education.

In such a scenario, post graduate programs are increasingly perceived as time consuming and not worth the money. This perception is in total contrast to the ground reality. Employers are more inclined to look for post graduate qualifications in a potential employee, especially in the field of business and management.

On the other hand, to discontinue education after graduation, there must be clarity of thought and it should connect with the aspirations of the student. Undoubtedly, the allure of financial independence is the major driver in our country that leads to a proliferation of graduates and sometimes a paucity of high caliber post graduates.
