This thing is of two ways...



If he's interested in expanding his career so as for him to procure a lecturing job, then he should go for his Masters.



But if his aim is to find a job to do or to start up his own business, then I think 180k is still good as a start up career capital for a BSC holder.









Follow your dream...

If he's into finance or engineering and still young, he should go for his masters degree, do exceptionally well, and gain some experience over there before coming back to Nigeria--If at all he would choose to.

Another option is that if the said multinational has a branch in canada, he should take up the job, gain some experience (say a year or two), then go for his masters afterwards & try as much as possible to work his way into the canadian branch of the said multinational firm.

Nothing is impossible.

why do you need masters...if it's to get well paid job..you already have! and you get more as you climb higher

except of course you wanna go into lecturing
but I tell you .

MSc degree is not work experience o! He better take the job and develop his professional experience. I know guys who have UK/US MSc degrees and still no job.

Please Take the Masters for two reasons
1. Canada is a lucrative country looking for young professionals, if his smart he would get better offers there too.

2.Even If you take the job 5years , down the line you would start yearning for a masters degree,so now you stil have age on your side.

Go for it!! Don't short change yourself...Take the leap of faith

Wherever in the world you have your M.Sc, the basic and first requirement for close to 95% of graduate jobs is a B.Sc (a 2.1 for most companies)..
To that end I would say to your friend please let him stick to the 180k job (that a really good pay for a fresh graduate in all honesty).
Also 2 years job experience is worth more than many masters. Also considering the recent emergence of AGE BENCHMARK on many jobs (add 2 years to his current age) then he will be back after his M.Sc having a very good certificate but limited by this glass ceiling called age barrier.

NB: I also have a masters degree and I can tell you from experience that MOST jobs require your Bachelor's degree and that's what most employers will ask for. I have been there having a M.Sc and feeling like will this job ever come e.t.c.

The condition i will advice your friend to go for the M.Sc in Canada and forfeit the 180k job, is if he plans to stay abroad - To that there is higher and better chance of getting a post-study visa in Canada and consequently a residence permit in no time in Canada. Canada is a very good destination in that regards compared to the U.K.
Also if he plans to get into academics then he better go for his M.Sc and subsequently his PhD which has more funding in Canada

Let your friend consider his options very well. I wish him the very best

He or she should go for Msc.
Canada is a lucrative country
after his/her masters if he/she gets a good job
within a year he/she will have make as much as he/she would have made working in Nigeria for two years...
and getting a PR is another added advantage...
...
Nigeria economy is not stable right now
..
best bet
Msc...

Since he has sponsor... if he can secure 180k job here.... he can do better in canada and nothing beats coming back from a developed economy with a MSc plus 3 years work experience... My opinion

He can defer the admission for a year and then work with the multinational and see how it goes.I had a colleague back then she got admission in Canada for M.sc and got a job also in a multinational company,she had to defer her admission,the only thing is you will pay for some charges that's all.Best of luck and above all pray for God's guidance.cheers

Take both of them.
Accept the Job, stay in the job for 3 years then tell your parents you want to go for your master's along the line of your job if the masters will add to your expertise. Otherwise, enroll for trainings and acquire additional skills and certifications that may be required in your jobline with your parents money. Take both with both hands. Don't leave any.

If you want to leave Nigeria for good and never come back, please go for your masters. You've a good chance of getting your PR... You also get a post studies visa for work experience. .
You've a sponsor now, grab the opportunity because you may not have a sponsor tomorrow. ...

180k isn't worth it IMO expect you don't wish to leave Naija...

Take that job. Masters can wait. Jobs don't wait!

Masters is overrated. I have a colleague who did Masters in Canada and could not get a job there. He came back home. I'd rather do a professional certification for now. Then Masters later.

The Undergraduate training aims at a Bachelor's degree while the Post graduate training results in Master's degree.

If I may ask...what does the word Master mean?

Personally I don't subscribe to doing Masters just upon graduation, what are you Mastering in if you don't have applied practical knowledge ?? Or you just wanna increase the stock of theoretical jargon in school. There is a wide margin between book knowledge and hands-on experience.

Consider other factors like age, awareness of the employment market and desired vs actual career path. Oftentimes, just a year work experience can change your career path to something you never thought will be interesting.

That said, stick with the job...enjoy it and consider professional certifications. Masters can come later.
