Why you should study Industrial Engineering

Should you spend a few more semesters deepening your knowledge from your Bachelor's degree or should you get into practice as soon as possible? Only you can answer this question. The extent to which a Master's degree is worthwhile for you depends on many factors. Basically, if you want to acquire specialised knowledge, new skills or pursue an academic career, you can hardly avoid a Master's degree.

Not to mention improved promotion opportunities and attractive career prospects, so that you can start directly as a manager after completing your IU degree. This much is certain: with a Master's degree in your pocket, you're definitely better off on the job market than without.
