Best Online Master's Degrees in Professional Studies 2019

A master’s degree is typically more focused than a bachelor’s on a specific field of study. Whereas a bachelor’s degree may be focused on building a student’s understanding of the general field, a master’s degree focuses on developing expertise.

If aspiring students already have a career they are committed to or know the career that they wish to enter, then acquiring a degree in professional studies may be what they’re looking for. What is a Master in Professional Studies? An MPS degree is a program that is hyper-focused on a specific career. For instance, students may specialize in subjects like human rights, international relations, and emergency management; therefore, an MPS degree can be highly adaptable and suitable for established professionals.

The benefits of degree programs typically vary based on degree focus, but an MPS degree does provide similar benefits despite varied specialties that may be of interest both professionally and personally. For instance, an MPS degree has a general focus on management; therefore, students develop skills like communication, conflict resolution, and time management.

A Master in Professional Studies may not have identical cost or even similar time requirements across all universities and locations. While graduate degrees typically take one to two years to complete, it is important to reach out to specific universities for information.

Those who pursue and earn a Master in Professional Studies may know that the careers vary as much as the degree’s specializations. For instance, those with an MSP degree may find careers as human resource directors, marketing managers, communication specialists, and event management consultants. Obviously, most careers depend on both the level of experience and education, but graduates with an MSP may find greater opportunity than those without.

As prerequisites and cost vary by institution and location, it is important to research any potential university to ensure a well-rounded decision. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Although the need to know is an innate characteristic of the human being, as well as the need to anticipate events, the chaos derived from the complex reality in which we move requires a constant effort, usually imperceptible, to order such complexity, equipping itself with instruments that allow the decoding of existing information. This official master's degree of Intelligence makes us see in this way that the human being faces the real world and the information it contains through brain processes that allow ultimately transforming information - whether public or private - into knowledge....

Study objectives

Digitalisation challenges social and health care activities as well as the way of thinking. A new approach to social and healthcare services means that the client/patient receives all information about him or her and is equally involved in the decision-making about his or her own care. Digitalisation does not, however, develop by itself but it requires multidisciplinary expertise to achieve commitment to change in the working life and to promote digitalisation actively. Digitalisation also offers possibilities for business intelligence. Health services in all EU countries have been available since the beginning of 2014, and digitalisation is introduced to add value to the cross-border services. The Master’s Degree in Digital Health provide the graduates with skills needed for innovative development of digital social and healthcare services, service production, expert organisation management and for the development of service quality and management.
