Master’s Degree

I finally completed my Master’s degree last week. It only took less than 2 years, quite a bit quicker than the 7 years it took to finish my BS degree (being deployed on submarines and dealing with the aftermath of 9/11 didn’t help).

My MS is in Information Technology Management, which is slightly different from a general MBA. Even though many of the concepts of an MBA are covered, the focus is on how IT affects business processes rather than the processes themselves.

I had a lot of fun with this degree; no wonder so many people get business degrees. They’re easy! I don’t know what my final GPA is but it’s somewhere around 3.94. I’m going to take a year or so off from school; I’ve been going non-stop for nearly 10 years after I joined the Navy. That’s not counting the time it took to get my AS degree.

My next goal is a Ph.D., probably in Information Management or another related field. I want to stay in the technology field but I don’t necessarily want a computer science degree. Guess I’ll see what’s available when I come back from Iraq. I’m definitely going to get another online degree though; both my BS and MS degrees were online and it makes life so much easier.

    Just the kind of (feel-good) news I like to read first thing in the morning. Congratulations Cody, I am happy for you! 🙂

    I don’t know what to think of your assignment to Iraq though; surely it is not something to get excited about.

    Take care of yourself, and may you succeed with your application (to officer school).

  2. Well, I found out that I’m ineligible for most officer programs because of my age. Since I had foot surgery last year, I haven’t been able to take any PT tests, which is a requirement for application.

    That leaves only one officer program I can apply for but I won’t be able to apply until next year, at the earliest. Hopefully I’ll be able to get accepted for that program.
