I'm from Germany and in my mid+ twenties.
Should I study another 2 years to get my Master's degree in CompSci? - You know life() is short, won't be young for ever.
What is a German Bsc. degree worth in the states and which difference does a Msc. degree make on income?
I'm already a Jack of all trades and thought all I know myself. What benefits do I have with a Msc.
- Theoretically earning more money in the long term
- Probably wasting 2 years
- Probably not learning anything new (except howto pass another exam)
- Spending a lot of money and risking to fall into debt
Thanks for your help!
