Canada's competitive job market poses a unique challenge for those already on the career ladder: how do you rise above your peers, boost your earning potential and make that leap to a leadership role? The answer may lie in career-focused, 100% online postgraduate programme that emphasises real-world applications and fits around your existing commitments – and that's exactly what you'll find with a University of Liverpool online programme.

Is postgraduate study really worth it?

There are some interesting figures to look at in Canada regarding earnings and education levels. In 2013, the National Graduates Survey found that the median annual salary was $41,600 for college graduates and $53,000 for bachelor graduates, but that figure rises to $70,000 for masters graduates and $75,000 for doctoral graduates. This data clearly shows that postgraduate degree-holders have on average higher incomes, and a higher degree could represent an important investment in your future success.

Aim higher, achieve more

Beyond the possible boost to earning power, postgraduate study may also be the key to genuine job satisfaction and to succeeding in a field you're passionate about. This is especially true if you find yourself in the same situation as many other bachelor graduates in Canada who want to move their careers to the next level but lack the executive-level expertise they need to progress.

Similarly, you could be one of the 19% of bachelor graduates who report that their job has no relation to their education. In those circumstances, the right postgraduate programme provides a valuable opportunity to reimagine your goals, open doors to your primary field of interest (92% of masters graduates in Canada report that the job is "closely" or at least "somewhat" related to their education) and maximise the investment you made in your original undergraduate studies.

The right programme from a top 1% university*

As masters-level training becomes the standard requirement in a growing number of fields – especially for those pursuing high-level positions – it's easy to appreciate the value of a high-quality degree from a distinguished institution. With the University of Liverpool, you'll find 100% online programmes for professionals who want to meet their next challenge head-on, gain high-level skill sets and push their careers to the next level.

You will also have access to a global network of peers, faculty and other contacts in more than 160 countries worldwide. This international perspective is held in high regard in Canada. According to Universities Canada, 82% of employers that hire recruits with international and intercultural experiences say these employees enhance their company's competitiveness. (Universities Canada Facts and stats, based on a commissioned Leger Marketing survey of small to medium-sized employers, 2014).

Of course, learning with a Russell Group university ranked in the top 1% worldwide* is not easy, but if you're at a crossroads in your career and you're ready for the next challenge, an online masters or doctoral degree can empower you to push your limits and succeed on an international stage.
