As an IT security professional, does it really matter which school a degree is earned from? For example, I have two schools that are both online and regionally accredited: American Military University and University of Maryland University College. AMU offers a B.S. in Information Systems Security, and UMUC offers B.S. in Information Assurance. UMUC's program, though, is part of the NSA's CAE.
With AMU, I am one year away from graduating. If I transferred to UMUC, it would definitely push my graduation back by another six months-to-one year.
Which school would be better for a career in IT security? Would it even matter if job experience is already present?
