Dual Masters from UK and CANADA?
Animesh Jain profile image Animesh Jain Member Join date: Jun, 2012 Posts: 2 Points: 0
I am planning to go for my masters in Telecommunication from Staffordshire University, UK and after that I wish to do masters in Engineering Management from Canada. I wanted to know that going for a dual masters will be how much beneficial for my career. Will it give me a boost or shall I stick to just one master?

Hi, Staffordshire is a good University in UK and I would suggest you to do your first Masters, work for a while, gain experience and then contemplate whether you need a second Masters at all. Once you gain experience, you will have the knowledge to pursue the right Masters in the right country, right domain and at that stage you can also contemplate doing a Part time Masters. 

My suggestion to you will be not to look too far ahead and just look at doing your first Masters well and also to seek a right employment based on your first Masters. If you gain a few years of experience, you can also seek to apply for Skilled Migrant Visa to Canada.

It is interesting to note that you want to do your second Masters in Engineering Management. As pointed out in the earlier answer I would also suggest that you work for some time before thinking about your second Masters degree. In your work you would learn some practical aspects of Management and you would understand the basics of management through your work. So you would practically learn Engineering Management principles and would use them on a day-to-day basis.

After doing so if you still think that a second Masters in Engineering Management would assist you in your career growth then do one at that time. 

All the best to you in your overseas endeavour.
