    I did my BS IT in about 2 years. I already had all of my lower division credits and an AS in Math & Technology. I have 2 more classes until I get get my MBA in Technology Management. So all together I will have spent about 5.5 years in school.

    A hard-science degree is good but you need to add some management, program management, or business education to actually get to a point where you get stock options and have an actual say in where and how a company will use technology. Or you could invest even more years and hope that you will one day get promoted to a higher position. I have been in the IT field for 9 years and have not stopped studying yet. With technology you will never stop studying, because when you do, you fall behind the competition.

    there are many online schools that let you transfer in all of your credits and finish a degree in IT fast. Yes they are accredited. Harvard ALM has an online degree!!!!!!!

    go to this site http://www.degreeinfo.com

    the forum has TONS of people talking about every kind of degree done online all the way up to PHD and JD.

    AIU (expensive) can do a bachelors in like 14 months and a masters in 8 to 10 months of intese studying.

    I got a degree from DeVry University, and even though they are the kings of popups and advertising, their instruction is second to none. I got an accredited B.S. degree in network management in 3 years, 8 months and I am rockin now. Forget ITT, that short-tern crap doesn't work in this world. 4-year degrees are the way to go.

    ITT has bachelors also though? I am going to ITT now. Why did you think they do not have bachelors degrees?
