Men who have taken a Masters degree in English earn 30 per cent less than if they had not, data shows

Men who do a Masters degree in English earn 30 per cent less than if they had not by their mid-30s, the Institute for Fiscal Studies has found.  

Some postgraduate courses – such as law, business and economics – generate a positive return just over a decade later, according to research commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE).  

Men and women who studied these courses earn up to 25 per cent more by the time they are aged 35 than if they had not taken them.  

But a large number of arts and humanities postgraduate courses leave both male and female graduates worse off, including languages, creative arts and history where earnings can be over 20 per cent less.  

Having done an arts undergraduate degree, “doubling down” by going on to a masters in the same field seems to result in large negative returns, the report said.

Stanford master’s degree program teaches tech, business skills for health care leaders

As a health services researcher and health economist, my job is to find a way to reduce the cost of great care. I literally feel bad at the end of the day if we haven’t made progress on that goal. It’s even our tagline at my academic home, the Clinical Excellence Research Center at Stanford.

Over the years, I’ve taught and created education programs around the issue of innovation in health care — at Duke University and then at Harvard Business School — before coming to Stanford Medicine in 2018. In these classes, students realize that solutions with the strongest potential for success draw equally on expertise in business, technology and medicine.

At Duke, I built a master’s degree program to develop future health care leaders with expertise that spans these key disciplines. Now, we’re launching the Stanford Medicine version, the Master of Science in Clinical Informatics Management (MCiM).
