What is the ROI on a graduate degree?

As an executive recruiter, I think about career trajectories a lot. When it comes to pursuing an advanced degree, most professionals wonder-will the output of time and energy be worth it? It’s a big commitment, especially for established professionals who usually have plenty to balance already. Inviting more work can seem daunting.    
I’ve experienced this firsthand. I’m proud to say that at age 53, I recently earned my graduate degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. My return on this investment has been excellent, both in terms of the refreshed sense of content related to my profession as well as the increase in self-confidence. Working hard and absorbing new material as an adult learner is challenging but also deeply satisfying. I continue to feed off the emotional and intellectual payoffs.
