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!
