    I have worked as an IT Admin and Engineer for several years and now I am looking into masters programs in hopes of better positioning myself for an IT management position. I was hoping to get some feedback to help me decide the best track to take. - Which degree would be better, MBA or Masters in IT Management? - How much of a difference does the school I attend make? - Is attending a program like University of Phoenix or Keller University less credible? - Are state schools more reputable than private ones? - Any suggestions? I have talked with colleges and executives alike and gotten a very diverse set of answers to these kinds of questions. It seems that most people are partial to the educational track they followed themselves. Also I have not met any two IT managers that got to their positions the same way.

    This is a tough one since the underlying opinion is that of the employer. For instance, an MBA may discount you if you are looking a job in IT if the employer has the perception that an MBA is something that there business manager or CFO should have. People do not always understand the program and how IT encompasses much more than managing hardware and software. If the employer is looking for a person to manage only hardware and software, you may lose out on the opportunity simply because you have an MBA and not the MIS degree. While neither degree guarantees success for their specific job description, you may not have a chance to explain that your experience is more valuable. It is for this reason, why you should always include a cover letter with any resume or application. Cover letters give you a chance to tailor your EXPERIENCE with why you should be hired for the job.
