Will your Degree Increase your Salary?

Let your Degree Earn Money for you!

Did you know that you can expect a pay raise after earning an additional degree? But it is not as simple as it sounds. Your current employer may not offer you a salary bump immediately. However, once you start looking for a new job in the hopes of earning more, your employer may see the value in raising your salary in order to retain you.  If they don’t, you will likely enjoy a salary increase when you switch to a new job.

How much of an increase can you expect to see?

That depends on your profession and your location but you can likely estimate between $8,000-$30,000 in salary increase.  But again, don’t take our word for it. Earn a higher degree from LAU and see how far it takes you.
