What Masters Degree Would Suit Me Best?
#11
What I am planning to do is a joint MBA and master’s (accounting in my case).  You can certainly do both and not go beyond your tuition reimbursement. Granted, it might require sacrificing the dream of a “big name” degree. 

Lamar University offers a joint MBA and Master of Science in Management Information Systems. Current tuition for the joint program is $20,000 (total). https://degree.lamar.edu/programs/master...n-systems/

Emporia State University has a Master of Science in Information Technology and MBA joint program. Current tuition is $18,513 (total). https://online.emporia.edu/programs/mba-...egree.aspx

Eastern Illinois offers a joint MBA and Master of Science in Cybersecurity. (The description does say “limited on-campus requirement but that might be doable since you are in Illinois). Current tuition is right at $18,000 (total). https://www.eiu.edu/mba/dual.php   AND.   https://catalog.eiu.edu/preview_program....urnto=1643

If I were you, I would probably apply for one (or more) of the marquee/name programs and if I didn’t get in, do one of these (or something like it, there are many others) as my backup.
B&M: BA (history, archaeology)
B&M: MA (American history)

In progress:
UMPI: BA-Accounting, Business Administration (management and leadership concentration)

Sophia: 15 courses (42hrs)

This could be the best of both worlds for you.

These look like good programs - I am not against paying out of pocket for.. I suppose "better" schools if that makes sense. You bring up a good point in joint programs!
