I can’t believe we’re still tying income potential to degrees. I know people who have Bachelors Degree’s in the arts (or no degrees honestly), yet make over $200k annually. Median for a Master’s in Business Analytics is about $140k, but this number depends largely on which industry you chose to pursue opportunities in and the city you live and work in.

Master’s degrees don’t guarantee anything salary. The potential has nothing to do with the degree.

There is a lot of speculation about degrees. In many worlds they are a ticket to enter the room (such as in law), but in tech I think you have to think of it as a special tool in your belt and value the knowledge on its own accord. If what you gain from the degree makes you better at your job, then you will probably get more money (if you make smart decisions about where you go/how you move). What I can say for sure is that most places will not pay you more money than someone with the same level of experience and qualification (sans the degree). That said, a PhD can help you break through glass ceilings in very traditional aspects of engineering and in some institutions, such as if you wanted to become a professor or a top scientist. However, in your situation, it's just a matter of making you a better analyst.

I have an environmental background, I left that to pursue a business analysis role and potential combine the two…..environmental and business analysis I just dont think my current business analysis role is pushing towards my goal. Ive been looking at Georgia Techs program.

That sounds like a great reason to get one and an interesting path. I would say that your focus on the environment would probably make it a bit slower to get to higher TC unless you pick really powerful, well-funded orgs. The fastest way to big numbers is FAANG. But this really doesn't matter as much as your passion. You'll never make it that far if you aren't jazzed about what you do.

Where are you planning to apply the degree or are you still largely undecided?

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
