I just start my first job related to planning about six months ago. I always assumed I would go on for a masters degree. Right now I am leaning towards an MPA program maybe starting in a year. I guess my question is, considering I am pretty much starting out on my professional career, Should I just concentrate on learning the in's and outs of my particular job for a few more years. Or try to get an advanced degree as quick as possible. We are a family of three with 1 income so money is always an issue. I've heard that an advanced degree can generally bump up a salary almost 10k. What do you think?
P.S. I could get financial asstistance from my employer and maybe some other sources to pay for some of the course work
