Does an MBA from a top school or M7 make that much of a difference for a career field like cybersecurity that is relatively new and more in demand?

As the title says, and maybe it is a silly question, but would striving for the position of a cybersecurity director or even CISO be given as much of an edge with an MBA from MIT Sloan or Havard for example instead of a more average MBA that is cheaper, still accredited, but might even have an IT management track? When I think about a expensive and prestigious MBA making the difference I think possibly Finance or general management as good examples.

The edge can mean many things: networking to get the job, brand recognition to get the job, more leverage to negotiate a higher salary, etc.



Honestly, I’ve rarely met anyone in an IT role in any capacity have an MBA in 25 years of consulting.
