Between now and 2020, a total of 55 million job openings will be created, according to a recent report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. An estimated six million of those jobs will require a graduate degree. Individuals who hold graduate degree earn about 30 percent more annually than individuals with a baccalaureate degree alone, according to another study by the U.S. Census Bureau.
