Masters Degree Advice

TL:DR I would like to seek the wisdom of the masses. In 2021 do you think a masters degree (IT or maybe MBA) is helpful in the field of IT cybersecurity?

Some background on me. I have a BA in Business and IT/Cybersecurity and have been working in cybersecurity for 6 years and love it. It’s really perfect for me. I work for a gas and electric company as a threat hunter and am studying for the OSCP. I got a message from the director of the IT program I got my bachelor’s from asking if I would be interested in being an adjunct (I got recommended by a former colleague who teaches). The position pay is negligible but it does carry a tuition benefit. My options would either be an MBA or a masters in IT (No masters in cybersecurity, unfortunately). I want to stay with the technology (so im learning towards mba) and eventually start my own business. What do you all think?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts! I appreciate it!



I have a Comp Sci BS and a Masters in Cybersecurity.

If you have a technical undergrad degree, it’s not worth your time. Better studying tools that are used, getting worth while certs and experience.

I got my masters to teach one class on the side while working but it has had zero effect in my career
