I would appreciate some advice from like minded people on WF about which degree to pursue.
Here's a little bit of information that might help you help me.
For the past 4 and a half years, I've been working full time, doing Web/I.T work for an Internet Marketing Guru.
I create sales pages, website/blog design, optin pages, set up split testing, affiliate management, help desk/technical support, banner ad management, manage his membership sites, video editing, come up with new ideas, etc.
With my interest and experience with Web/I.T. stuff, it makes sense to get a degree in I.T.
I also have an interest & passion for business and marketing. However, from what I've heard, those degrees are very general and not useful. Plus, I think if I'm going to be successful as a business owner, it's going to be do to my experience and things I learned through self education, not because I got a degree in it.
I'm also considering a degree called M.I.S (Management Information Systems). Basically, a career in this field would mean I communicate with the Computer Science majors and work with them on what the company needs in our software/technology, from a business standpoint.
Since the Computer Science majors have no idea about business, and the business owners probably don't have any idea about technology/software development, I would act as an interpreter and make sure the job gets done the way it should.
It's somebody who has both a good understanding of business and technology.
However, I'm not sure how the job scene is for somebody with that sort of degree.
Some people have told me that M.I.S sounds like a good degree, but they weren't too sure how many employers are looking for employees with a "soft" I.T. degree.
So I thought I'd come here, where I'm likely to find people who are more like me.
What do you guys think? I really appreciate any advice you guys have.
