I graduate with a bachelors in businesses management with economics last year. I intend to hopefully do my masters in either development economics or behavioural economics. The main reason in doing the masters is to accelerate my career. So, from where I am now it would take me 5 year to reach a certain level, but with the masters will take 2-3 years instead.
I agree, I only included the 3rd option if the sponsorship wasn’t in the picture.
