Having a bachelor’s degree in IT is a very good foundation. Nothing will prepare you better for management than knowing what you are managing.
That means getting in the IT trenches and doing the job you may eventually manage. Doing that will give you greater value in a tightening IT job market. I have worked for IT managers that have come in fresh from college that did not have real world IT experience and they have not lasted very long.
I agree. Good luck finding someone that will hire you for a management position without any experience.
