I am a final year undergraduate (Computer Science; decent uni in a third world country) and one of my long-term goals is to pursue a Ph.D. (preferably at a top 20 uni).
For some reasons, I didn't apply for Masters abroad this year. I have a decent job lined-up. I have the following choices:
- Join the company and apply for Masters next year (Fall 2019).
- Join a Masters program at a local uni and then apply for Ph.D. after two years.
What would be the best option? (I have some research experience but no publications yet).
