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.
