How does someone have the time and ability to obtain a master degree?

Despite the professional success that each person may have in their current job, the key to achieve a professional growth is by continue learning new concepts that could complement your professional knowledge and therefore increase your chances of getting a promotion and a better-paying job.

However, with the current professional competition, the increasing cost of higher education, the demanding work schedule, limited funds and maybe a family to support, how does someone have the time and ability to obtain a master degree?

Taking these in consideration, the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte and the Belk College of Business at UNC Charlotte took the task to organize an Informational Session to explain how their graduate programs could help you to make a difference in your career and leverage your earning potential. Read below how.
