Pursuing an advanced degree has long been considered a good career move. While the decision often depends on an individual's field of work, most employers are impressed by applicants with advanced degrees. In the current economic climate, however, the value of advanced degrees has become a point of contention. With so many people unemployed, one argument goes that an advanced degree can make a given applicant stand out from the rest. On the other hand, companies with limited budgets may look at applicants with advanced degrees as luxuries they cannot afford.
