The study also analysed salary increases by field of study. Business graduates saw an average rise of 51% in salary from bachelor's to master's degrees. For engineering students, the average increase was 32%.

These findings show the transformative effect of higher education. Master's programs provide students with advanced, specialised knowledge and skills in their chosen fields. This enables them to access a wide range of job opportunities in industries such as business, technology, healthcare, and engineering, which have a high demand for advanced degree holders. For example, MBA graduates in consulting, financial services, and technology tend to earn higher salaries due to the high demand for their skills in these sectors.

By enabling access to many top-tier educational institutions, Prodigy Finance is empowering students to enhance their careers and improve their financial well-being. If you're looking to advance your career and boost your earning potential, pursuing a funded master's degree with Prodigy Finance could be the perfect solution.

Loan applications are open for the Fall semester of 2024 and the Spring semester starting in January 2025. This allows you to secure your funding well in advance and focus on preparing for your studies.
