    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for advice or previous experiences from people who have been in my position or are in my position.

    I've just finished my B.Eng in Mechanical Engineering through Open University and now looking to progress my learning onto a Master's Degree.

    I work for a large motor company and they have supported me studying for my B.Eng over the last 3 years but I'm now looking to move away from engineering for my master's degree.

    I have a well paying secure job so a part time master's is my only option at the moment. I've been looking at distant learning (online) degree's along with Universities located in London and the South East as these are located close to where I live.

    Preferably I would like to study along the line of Finance, Business etc. as I see these would be the most beneficial if I stayed at my current company.

    Has anyone been in my position and if so what master's degree did you do after an engineering degree?

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to do what's best for you. Think about why you want to do the masters and if it's really needed. Also, you say that it will help if you stay at this company so why do you think they won't support you?
