WGU MS Information Technology Management
#1
While I still plan on doing GA Tech's Masters in Cybersecurity, I wanted to get a quick win with a masters before I start that program.  I was considering the MBA or MBA-IT from WGU, since I know the format already, but then I found the MSITM:

This seems more up my alley, as it's less accounting and more IT/Project Management focused.

If I plan to stay in IT, does anyone see a problem in doing this as opposed to the MBA/MBA-IT?

If I was going to stay in IT, I would do the MSITM - it just seems more applicable to your situation.

I would do the MBA if it was very valued in your company and was looked upon as a direct way to advancement. Or if you wanted to move into upper management someday, very high (like CIO).

But it does seem as if you are getting the BSCSIA and a MS in Cybersecurity, do you really need the MSITM? It's starting to seem like you're narrowing things down instead of opening them.

There's some method to the madness here. I'm pretty sure the GA Tech degree will likely take me 3 years, where the MSITM would take me 6 months. At that point I could still have a masters on my resume while I work through the GA Tech program. Additionally, I'm betting that already having a masters will make it easier to get into the GA Tech program. This is all covered by tuition reimbursement from my work, so no money out of pocket no matter which direction I pick.
