Academic Benefits

Here's why you should get a degree

There are many benefits to be derived from attaining a Bachelors degree. Research has shown that holders of a degree tend to earn money than those without a degree. In fact, a study done by the US Census Bureau showed that persons with a degree earns an average of 43 percent more than someone without one over the course of a lifetime.

In addition to the obvious financial benefits of earning a degree, there are also non monetary benefits to degree holders:

  • Degree holders tend to hold higher quality jobs leading to a career rather than less fulfilling positions
  • Graduates tend to be a source of innovation and contribute to economic growth
  • Organisations rely on persons with expertise in business to prosper
  • There is a great number of career opportunities available to individuals with a good business education
  • The children of degree holders benefit from their parents' academic achievement because of greater parental involvement in their education
