Considering Going Back To School? 5 Questions To Ask Yourself

Can you relate to this? You're ambitious, driven, and ready to take your career to new heights. But maybe going back to school as a busy adult still seems daunting. 

If so, trust me, I've been there.

My name is Lisa Martinez DeVinney, and as Roberts’ Director of Recruiting for Adult & Graduate Enrollment, my goal is to make your career better. I help busy adults like you return to school to earn associate, bachelor’s, or advanced degrees. 

As someone who worked and parented throughout my master’s degree, I know it’s hard work. But two promotions and a bigger paycheck later, I can confidently say I’d choose to do it again in a heartbeat.

Here are some of the questions you can ask yourself as you search for your program:

  • What are my career goals?

  • How much more do people earn in the jobs that require this degree?

  • If I want to change my career, how could this degree help?

  • How much will it cost?

    • Is my employer a Roberts Corporate Partner, qualifying me for a 25% discount?

  • Should I choose an online, in-person, or hybrid format?
