WGU just rolled out a new Master's degree, MS Management and Leadership... I am contemplating going after this one, but I am not sure whether it will be beneficial for me in the long run (I already have the MSISA.) Cost isn't a really big issue, since most of the cost (I think) can be covered by what's left in my GI Bill, especially if I can finish in 2 terms. What is your opinion on the value of 2 Master's degrees, in different fields, especially with one being fairly accelerated (I took two years for the MSISA). I don't want to cast a shadow on the integrity of either degree but looking forward, the M&L degree would probably serve me better for my career aspirations. So yay or nay? Discuss amongst yourselves...

    I'm going to go after adopting that or the MBA.

    As for a second masters degree, it never hurts to show the aptitude, drive and ability to tackle these. IMO a candidate with multiple degree's, regardless of where it's from, is a potential diamond in the rough.

    Thanks darkerz... I just don't want to shoot myself in the foot by overdoing it.

    My wife is actually planning on enrolling in this same program... probably in July...

    Would you mind sending me a PM with your thoughts after you've had a little time to check out the program? Good luck!!

    Sure, but if I don't, you'll probably need to remind me, LOL

    It looks to be the mba without the finance courses...I'll leave it like that.

    Actually it's not, there is only one course that is shared with the MBA program.
