Learn How to Talk to Your Employer About Graduate School

Over the past few months the Graduate Admission team has hosted special webinars on the critical topic of how to talk to your employer about graduate school. We were lucky in this featured session to be joined by Suzie Anthony, VP of People & Culture at SessionM MasterCard. Suzie was able to help us answer questions about how to frame conversations and what considerations to make when you’re thinking about applying to graduate school!

Key takeaways include:

What to ask for from your employer. Are you asking for flexibility in hours? Are you hoping to get tuition remission?

Does your organization offer education-based benefits? Some employers include tuition remission in their list of benefits. If not, there is opportunity to establish personal career goals in conversations with your direct supervisor.

How will your graduate degree benefit your employer? Having an open dialog about how you can positively help the organization by way of achieving your graduate-level educational goals can go a long way.

Look out for more topical admission events in the coming weeks!
