I recently transitioned out of the military, and I'm now looking to get my foot in the door in IT. However, I'm finding that having a BA and worked in a decidedly "low tech" environment for the past several years is making that exceedingly difficult.
My question is, in order to obtain a job as an IT PM, would it better to pursue a MBA with a specialization in information security management, or get a MS in a field such as cyber security?
Any advice that you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Saving Changes...
Well, frankly speaking, higher education will give you a foundation but in order to become a PM in IT, I believe you need the practical experience but if you are willing to take it one step at a time, then definitely education is the first step.
I noticed that you have your PMP which is a great asset for what you are looking for. As a PM, you do not need to be involved technically in all aspects so if you have the PM experience even though it was in a different environment, you should be able to manage other projects.
