Hi,

I am due to graduate this year with a BSc in Computer Science. I am currently unsure whether to pursue an MSc in Management or whether to seek employment. Whilst I feel like studying Management would be interesting and potentially beneficial, I'm equally attracted to the prospect of earning significant money next year.

For a bit of background information, I haven't had the best of university experiences due to not meeting any likeminded people (not a very social university) and so in some ways probably want to draw a line under this chapter of my life. However, on the contrary, I would be studying in a city university either at, or closer to home should I opt to study a master's, so perhaps that would provide more of what I have been missing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. In particular if you've studied MSc Management then that would be great, but also any postgrads - what is the work / life balance like, anything you wish you'd known beforehand, etc.?

Have you thought of doing MSc Management part time if they offer it at the desired uni? It’ll give you the opportunity to study and earn money so 🤷🏽*♀️ Be sure to remember that employers are more drawn to work experience

Thanks for the reply. I did consider this but unfortunately both of the unis I would be applying to don't offer this, which is a shame. The point about the work experience is a good one - I don't have much of it though!
