Michigan is worth it. Nebraska not so much.

Currently first year working. Many industry jobs require a masters and an MBA seems to be more worth while since I already have a BS in cyber security. What do you guys think?

like

Asked this same question today. I think the BS in Cybersecurity will carry more weight with your added experience 5-10 years down the line bc our industry is so hot. Of course the MBA helps but if your goal is CISO you may be able to make that just with a ton of experience. Say at 10-15 years in consulting or director/md level? (which may be the only thing you'd be likely for - not sure if you consider this "upper management"). Just my perspective for down the road

At Kpmg, if you're working internally you need a masters to be a director or higher.

Yea besides Kellogg and ross I might say Kelley but that's it

What about Penn State, Rutgers, or Maryland U?

Business school is a great option for a reset and to explore your passions. Personally, if those were my only options I'd re apply next year. Unless timing was important

I don't even know what schools I'd have a good shot in getting into. I went to PSU, graduated with a 2.9 cum gpa, and a 3.55 major gpa. I won't be applying for 2-3 years, but I doubt a top 20 would take me.

I know other companies have similar policies, so my feeling is I need a masters

I'd go to the West division certainly - Harbaugh, Meyer, Franklin have made the East way too tough for a new entrant. You lose too many games out there, the athletic director'll fire you before you can sneak out with a degree.

Now a school like Iowa though? Schedule's shaping up pretty nice for a 2018-2019 stint in the hot seat 🤔

MARYLAND U

Minnesota!! Lol
