Congratulations and good luck in your studies. Having a diverse portfolio is definitely a plus. I will complete my MS within the next four weeks, and it does feel good. I also have numerous IT certifications as well. The options that you end up having may ultimately rest with how you are able to apply the knowledge that you have garnered throughout your education.
Networking, as well as management skills, will, in my opinion, always be in demand.
A June 2008 article located here:
indicates the following:
- “there is a pervasive need for specialized networking skills”
- ” 36 percent of the global companies surveyed reported that they have dedicated wireless specialists in their IT organizations, a number that will almost double in the nextfive years.”
- “Dedicated network security specialists were found in 46percent of the companies surveyed and that number is expected toincrease to 80 percent in five years.”
Education is a great thing and something to better arm you in whatever IT sector you pursue.
My preference would be that you go for a Degree in Business Technology Management which has a wider scope as far as career is concerned. But as you mentioned that your interest in IT is specifically in Networking then the Bachelors in Computers Netoworking suites you more (only if you want to cater to your interest). Although the Networking Degree will be more technical in in-depth in Networking (LAN, WAN, Routers, Switches, Fibre, Network Admin, Network Security), the Degree in Business Technology Management will give you straight away a better job option with higher career growth.
