I was interested in everyones opinion about whether I should work towards a:

MS Information Assurance

or

MS/MBA Information Assurance

Can anyone tell me the Pros/Cons of either? What would you do? How would a having both a MBA and MS benefit me in this type of career? What to expect (career/pay/challenges/etc)?

Any thoughts would be appreciated Very Happy

Jas40,

Before you get ahead of yourself, do you have a Bsc aka Bachelors Degree or relevant industry experience where you might be admitted on an Msc course? I not then its a moot point.

I have a BS CIS (Computer and Information Sciences). I've been accepted into the university for either program, I'm just torn between degrees right now.

I selected the school because of their MS IA program, plus I saw they had the dual MS/MBA if I wanted to go that route. They have a excellent MBA program, most students select the school for the MBA program. I just can decide. Very Happy

Thank you for the reply

Jas40,

It depends whether your want to be a techy or a manager? An MBA for a techy is useless.

Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years time? That should answer your question.
