Technically, it won't really matter as your major is in MBA or Business Administration, your concentration or focus would be in IT. Information Technology is a broader field, Cybersecurity is a subset or a sub field within Info Tech, so, if you want to "further" concentrate in an area of IT, then choose Cybersecurity, if you just want a broader knowledge of IT, then leave it as it currently is....MBA concentration in IT vs MBA concentration in IT with focus in Cybersecurity.

Hi Bjcheung77, I appreciate for your value opinion. I will do MBA in IT. I will be taking some recognize cybersecurity certifications. If I take MBA in IT i can graduate faster because I do not need to take one more course. I will contact my counselor to change to information technology.
