There’s a program format for you

Are you wanting to enroll in a program that’s fully on campus so you’re immersed into the program and its resources? We’ve got plenty of them. Looking for an online program to maintain your current job and your time with friends and family? We’ve got that, too.

With seven specialized master’s programs and different options within each, Warrington has something for everyone.

Why rush into the job market now?

As economic uncertainty continues, this could be the perfect time for you to stay in school or return to school and pursue a graduate degree. By the time you graduate with your master’s, you’ll have a clearer picture of what the future looks like in your industry.

For current students, all it means is staying in school for as little as one extra year. Warrington’s combined degree programs allow you to pursue a master’s with time and financial benefits. But for those already in the workforce facing uncertainty, going back to school can provide you with the skill set to make you an impactful employee in your industry.   

Stand out when you do enter the job search

Whenever you begin to look for a job, doing so with a master’s on your resume makes you stand out more to recruiters and employers. It shows them you have more skills than other applicants, but it also shows that you value self-growth and improving yourself.

Your experience in our master’s programs will also make you more well-rounded and prepared to stand out during interviews. It’s the perfect way to improve your soft skills and be able to sell yourself to recruiters.

Resources go much further than classroom learning

The classroom is an important aspect of our master’s programs. You’ll learn the fundamentals of your industry and how to become an expert. However, the classroom setting is only the beginning. You’ll experience many positives in the program that come from outside of the classroom.

Warrington has a Business Career Services office where you can experience individualized attention from career coaches that know how to set you up for success. There are also student organizations for you to meet like-minded professionals and build your resume.
