6 or 8 ANSWER Masters programs typically take one to two years to complete if you attend full time. Doctorate programs take at least four or five years and often times …it takes longer to complete the dissertation. Doctorate programs are more competitive for admissions, how competitive depends on the field. Work experiences often times matters little for doctorate programs but can matter a great deal for masters programs. Doctorate programs typically are interested in research experience, previous coursework, academic recommendations, and the ability to do creative research. Usually, if your aim is a PhD, it's advantageous to apply directly to PhD programs. However, if the academic record lacks strength, a masters may first be necessary. Viper1
In most cases, yes. Typically the masters degree comes first. However, it sometimes depends on the program of study. For example, medical school for most individuals follows c…ompletion of undergraduate work. In addition, there are some graduate programs where a college or university will combine the two degrees, allowing you to complete them without having to separately apply for each one.
The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace…. What will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand.. Skills . These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to leverage these differences and translate them into learning opportunities.. Networks . An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients. Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic management in order to position themselves to be relevant in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new territories.. Brand . The MBA degree is a recognized brand that signifies management and leadership training. The particular school and type of MBA program you attend also have brand associations that can help open doors based on the school's reputation. The strength of a school's brand is based on the program's history, its ability to provide students with technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and the reach of its alumni and industry network. A powerful brand can give you the flexibility to make changes throughout your career.. Source: http://www.wharton.upenn.edu/mba/admissions/decision/why.cfm
A masters degree can range from 30 credits upward to - in some cases - 72 in specified course work areas and can take two to three years to complete .

If you start a doctoral program without a MA/MS you will have to complete the MA program before you start the PhD program. The college will grant you the MA in the middle of y…our PhD program and then you go on to finish the PhD . If I can offer a suggestion, do the MA/MS and wait a year or two for the PhD because a PhD program is very stressful and requires all of your attention. Having done both I found the MA easy compared to the PhD
The doctorate is higher.
Short answer, no. You can go towards earing your doctoral degree after receiving your bachelors however, be prepared. You will need to take loads more credit hours than someon…e who has their masters. Do some research about the programs at the university you intend on attending.. Additional info on this . In the middle of your PhD they will grant you a MA, so essentially you are working towards a MA. May I suggest you do one and then do the other. Having done both degrees I found the PhD stressful and it takes concentration/dedication to finish. I did the MA in less than 2 years and the PhD in 3.5 years. If you are working and have a family be aware that doing grad work also takes a toll on the family as well. Just know this going in because many people do not take these factors into consideration before they start grad work and either never finish or have family problems. I guess that is why only 1% of the United States have PhD's.
you go to grad school and work hard for two years or so.
Salary is based on whatever someone is willing to pay you, and that is usually based on their perception of what you can accomplish for them. Salary, earning potential, and ma…rketability are not only determined by the type of field you are in and the degree you possess. It depends on your position within that field, the institution you work for, your experience, expertise, personal abilities, critical thinking skills, problem solving abilities, dedication and commitment toward ones work, and more. Thus, salary is not so much dependent on the type of degree as much as it is dependent on the person who holds the degree. Still, if you have a specific occupational title, you can then retrieve the estimated mean annual wage particular to that occupation
