The benefits of earning a bachelor's degree or adding a master's degree to your resume are well-documented, including increased earnings, career advancement and expanded skill sets. Your employer's tuition reimbursement benefit can be the launching pad for continuing your education by providing an affordable way for you to pursue the degree you've always wanted.

Research shows employer tuition reimbursement programs can be a win-win for you and your company. These benefits can reduce turnover and help your employer attract qualified applicants. In fact, a recent study found that for every $1 a company spends on educational assistance, it saves $1.29 to $1.44 in recruiting costs. Companies who invest in their employees' continuing education also enhance staff engagement, feelings of self-worth and loyalty.

USF Sarasota-Manatee offers a variety of programs to fit around working professionals' busy lifestyles, including evening, weekend and online options. For those interested in business or hospitality programming, some of those degrees can be completed primarily online.
