Any Career Benefit from Online Masters?

Amazon prestige🧐
Jul 5 13 Comments

Just got accepted into Georgia Tech online computer science masters program.

I originally applied before I had this Amazon internship and before I knew what Leetcode was.

Now I have a very different understanding of the tech world, and I’m leaning towards turning down GATech and just focusing more on work and LC.

Anyone think I should go through with the masters? Is there any real career benefit to doing so?

    Lots of career benefit for the cost of the program.

      I agree that the financial cost is negligible, but Im more worried about the time/energy investment

      The whole program can be completed for like $7k lol

      But apparently each course can be like a 10-20 hour / week time commitment which is what I’m concerned about

    Only beneficial if it's a degree in master of leetcode. Experience is more important than education.

    I would say if you already finished CS degree then only PhD matters.

      Don't do a PhD. Unless you have tons of money to live comfortably, being a PhD student will make you live on the poverty line. It's not worth it.

    A degree is always worth it. Given GA tech repo and the cost of program, i’d say totally go for it
