Thinking about getting a master's degree
The degree would be in cyber security online I'm doing the basic research now. Some big name schools like USC offer online masters degrees in IT and cyber security which is great for me.
I've heard it said often that there is no value past a bachelor's in the IT field unless you're going for management but in my case I'm lacking direction. I have my Tier 3 helpdesk job but nothing is pushing me one way or the other. I need to do something to move my career forward. Only thing stopping me from enrolling is the cost. I have to put more thought into it before I spend 30 - 60K.
As for regular certs there so many these days. I just feel like I need to take bigger step. The lack of direction right now is my problem.
Has anyone else got a masters in any area of IT? How did that work out for you and your current career?
