Question Serious career advice needed

Hi there! I'm a recent BSc graduate from the Lahore School currently working for a very nice (and well paying) local start-up. I've always had a wish to move abroad and now I have a Master's offer in hand but just can't decide if I should be leaving my job (and not-so-happy family) by borrowing a family loan to be paid back later. Alternatively, I can work a few more years, do my Master's from LUMS, and maybe work in the middle-east. It's very frustrating and I seriously need to talk to someone experienced enough to counsel (and console) me

Facts about me:
Age: 24, M
Bachelors in Econ & Bss-Mgmt
Masters in Supply Chain (Prospective)
Carrer stream: Supply-chain, Operations, Warehousing, Logistics
Ambitions: Wanted to move to Canada and just stay there, now want to make some cash, invest in my father's business and come back taking early retirement and chill!

Just so that you know, I'm a street-smart very hardworking guy who can always hunt for some opportunity to earn.

I now have live few options:

1. Move to the UK for a Master paying with loan money and repaying when I have a job there after graduating. Later earn money, invest back home and return.
2. Stay back, do my MS from LUMS, work alongside, then move to Canada with PR.
3. Earn a LUMS MS and then move to the middle-east for a better paying job.
4. Just stay back and chill!

If someone plans to contact me, feel free to DM.

Well, firstly, its good that you are pretty much clear about your eventual goal, which is to chill. Secondly, you are reasonably educated now. No need to acquire an MS degree if you do not need to contribute to the society or add an innovation in the field. If your personal well being is the priority then avail the opportunity for moving to Canada. Going to the UK is also fine but Canada is relatively more tolerant and there are plenty of avenues to explore.
Nevertheless, you must not ignore what your gut says. If it says you to stay here and chill, do it. Or if it gives you the optimistic vibes about moving abroad and fulfill your desires, go for it.

Assalam O Allaikum, you are very young to be thinking about chill lol. but its the final goal for everyone.
First of evaluate your current job, its a start up which means you are learning a lot and you are following a set of SOP and passing days you are either setting the SOPs or helping in the process which will definitely come as achievement. So stay for a while till you think you are learning. this learning experience is better than an MS degree. This will give you time to save money and be close to family. because be sure one you move abroad it might not be your choice when you can visit again.

So once you have enough experience then try for Canada as brother above said it has favorable options as compared to UK and in few years after getting ample experience and hopefully a passport you can move to middle east and finally retire to Pakistan or anywhere else.

It is good to have a plan but in SH.t Happens which we dont see coming (sorry for the bad word hahah). So Never put your all eggs in one basket unless you really think the risk is worth taking and its a life time opportunity.

I hope it helps.
