    Verdict: Drop your plans of doing MS in IT from an Australian university if you get a salary of INR 15 Lakhs to INR 25 Lakhs a year in India. The NPVs are discouraging for all the top 500 colleges.

    M.S. in Information Technology Abroad or Work in India: What to Pick?

    If Canada, Germany or Australia are in your plans for M.S. in IT, then it is worth it only if you earn about INR 5 Lakhs in India presently. If your paycheck is INR 15 Lakhs or above, don’t invest in the degree from these countries. If the US is the pick, then it would prove to be the best place to study MS in Information Technology, as long as your salary is INR 15 Lakhs or below. If you earn INR 25 Lakhs in India, you’ll only burn a hole in your pocket by opting for the course in the USA.

    If your exact salary doesn’t match with the figures in the article, look for the closest option and then extrapolate. Better yet, use our Estimate Future Earnings Tool to get a clearer picture.
