50% of UK’s universities are among the top 500 universities of the world. This can be attributed to UK’s one-year intensive Masters courses that save on both cost and time.
As far as employers are concerned, they prefer a UK degree because it equips students with specialized skill-sets. Some of the popular courses that universities in the UK offer include MBA, finance, marketing, HRM, international business, technology management, electronics, computer science, IT, artificial intelligence, mechanical, automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, genetics, economics, law (criminal and commercial), development studies, human rights, English literature, public policies, international relations and climate change, among others.
