However, some countries view the degrees equally regardless of which state the degree is pursued from.    

At a professional level, companies are looking forward for people who come from a wide spectrum of education with a number of experiences. They want to hire people equipped with a deeper understanding of cultures across the world, places and communities. For example, an ad agency would definitely want to hire someone who is well versed and informed about the history/ past of the place where the agency is looking to launch a particular product at. They look for people who are open minded who have sensibility towards nations in relation to their history. History students reflect a willingness to work and learn. At least, that’s how they are trained to be at their place of study. Hence, many companies are always looking for people who exhibit such calibre and mind-set. Companies want to hire people who have a broad range of experiences and the skill-set of languages that the course of history can enable one to learn. A history degree also offers the career opportunity for research and teaching. Teaching could be considered at any level, secondary or university level. All historical archives offer growth opportunities for people who have just had a history degree.
