Masters Degree in Cybersecurity
Hello everyone! I recently wanted a career change, I am 24 so I’m fairly young and i have a BS in business management. So I have no prior IT background.I had the option to goto a boot camp for cybersecurity at rice university for 15k and get all the certs and knowledge or get my Masters-degree in IT focusing on cyber security.
I chose to get my master and so far I’m loving it, I’m in the 3rd week of my first class and it’s just an intro to IT. But soon i will get into my specialization classes (cyber security) and will the knowledge i learn in class be enough for me to get an entry level job? One of my professors recommend that the first Cert i should try and get is Security + and then once i get experience i should get CISSP. Do you have any thoughts or recommendations?
Also i have another year and a half before i will be done with my masters so what should be doing right now to prepare my self for a career in IT/ cybersecurity. I currently have a job but i would love to try and find an internship or entry level job in IT so i can get prepared for my career.
Thank you so much !
