Importance of Masters Degree for IxD Professionals

The recent thread on the SVA program and subsequent writing about online
programs has got me wondering - how important is a Masters Degree in a
design related discipline to the success of one's career?
As someone who is already working in the IxD field and at the same time
very geographically limited in terms of educational institutions I have
access to for furthering my education, is having a Masters Degree going
to limit my job prospects or success?
What do you guys think? Those of you with Masters (or higher degrees),
how has having one helped you. Those that don't, do you feel not having
one has held you back or hurt you in any way? Do you plan on pursuing a
higher degree? If so, why?
