Thinking of doing a Masters but can't make up your mind? Lars Bjørnbakk discusses why he chose to do one.

When I saw the end of my academic life fast approaching, I had a choice to make; should I move out of the library and into an office, or should I clinch to the university doors for yet another year in order to earn my masters degree?

My adventure as an advertising student started three years ago back in Norway. I did two years Advertising and Brand Communication at the Norwegian School of Creative Studies, and a top-up year of Advertising at Southampton Solent University, the place I am currently doing my masters in Project Management at.
