Masters in Networking in Canada or Australia is not going to give any right directions to your career. Take professional Certifications.

Over 70% of the internet or Networks around the globe are created using Cisco devices. Apart from Cisco, there are companies like Juniper, Checkpoint etc making these networking equipments.

Companies need Network Engineers or Network Security Engineers who can actually use these devices to create, manage, secure and troubleshoot networks. If you opt for any Bachelors degree in Networking in Canada or Australia (The Two Obvious and Hot Indian destinations to study abroad), you will not learn anything updated and useful. They are not going to train you on real time networks and devices.

Why to spend 2 years on such a degree that is going to be of no use for you, if you have to ultimately start your career as Network Engineer?

I would suggest you to choose CCIE Certification to kick start your career. It will be little tough than other career options but it will be more interesting too! It will shape your career in less time and give you more value in terms of career and job opportunities.

I would suggest you to either go for CCIE R&S Certification or CCIE Security Certification Training.

If you are ready to work hard and forget your social life for 1 year, you can opt for CCIE. Career will be far better than a Network Degree holder from Canada.
